Meshutaf Tel Aviv is a regional-wide program, and is open to any child living within the municipality of Tel Aviv. 


Registration Process:

Before registration, we strongly encourage everyone to review our guiding principles (in Hebrew) and/or to speak with a parent representative. (The best way to contact us is by email: contact@meshutaf.org) If you would prefer to speak with an English or French speaker, please let us know.


We also recommend that you review the registration form to better understand the registration process. The form can be downloaded here (in Hebrew). Its completion is required for registration. Once you have decided to join Meshutaf Tel Aviv, here’s what you need to do to register:


1.    Go to the registration section of the municipality’s website (In Hebrew) and follow the prompts.
2.    Choose “Meshutaf Tel Aviv”  (משותף תל אביב) as the school that you are registering for.
3.    Complete and submit the registration form on the municipality’s website. 
4.    Attend one of our information evenings (details and dates can be found here).

Please note: space in Meshutaf Tel Aviv is limited. Completion of the registration process does not guarantee that a child will be placed in the program. 


In the spring, a placement committee will convene at the municipality to determine the classes for next year. 
The process works as follows: 


1. Grade 1 (Kita Alef): children who attended gan chova (senior kindergarten) and the siblings of children already attending Meshutaf Tel Aviv, will be accepted first.

Gan Chova/Trom Chova (Kindergarten): siblings of children already attending Meshutaf Tel Aviv will be accepted first. 

2. A “lottery” will be held to fill any remaining spaces. The lottery is conducted in a way that will maintain, as much

as possible, the religious/secular/masorti/mixed-family balance in the class. 

The committee relies on the information provided by parents on their registration form. 

This form does not “filter” applicants, it is instead used as a tool by the committee to ascertain a family’s Jewish identity, as they themselves have defined it. 

If, for example, there are three more spaces in a particular class and there are currently more secular and mixed/masorti families than religious families in that class, then there will be a priority to fill those remaining spaces with children coming from families that identify as religious.
