Life Can Be More than
Check Marks
How the Liliyot social business transformed one teen’s life

white line

Aviv felt for much of his young life that his personal story was playing out in shorthand, or “check marks.” Growing up as an only child – check. Parents divorced – check. An absent father – check. Spending evenings alone while his mother worked late – check. A bored, lonely childhood – check. Running with the wrong crowd at a very early age – check.

Then his aimless life came to a crashing halt. He found himself in juvenile detention, was moved to a live-in rehabilitation program, and then house arrest. He had left school in 10th grade, sneaking out of the house late at night, wandering the streets and getting into trouble. He found himself caught in a hopeless downward spiral. “My lawyer really liked the Liliyot restaurant and was aware of the social program there,” Aviv recalls. “She asked me if I’d like to consider being part of that.” Just before his 17th birthday, Aviv was accepted to the program and began his training. He realized very quickly that it wasn’t just another check mark in his life. “I saw right away that this program could give me a real chance to straighten out my life,” he says. “I understood from the first day that this would require a serious attitude on my part. I also realized that I could be myself, that I would be accepted by the others. The workplace at Liliyot is organized for youth like me who seek immediate gratification. I could do great work and see immediate results. It was so motivating!”

Aviv’s first and most important relationship at Liliyot was with the chef, Shmuel. When he talks about Shmuel, Aviv stops for a moment, and with emotion, says, “Wow. Where would I be today without him?” Shmuel mentored Aviv, recognizing his potential and his drive to succeed. He helped him to become a full-time cook within four months of joining the program. “Shmuel treated me as an equal. And he spoke to me very directly, knowing about my past but respectful of my potential. His influence on me has extended well beyond my training and has informed many of the decisions I’m making as an adult.”

Aviv’s house arrest continued during the first part of his training and was rolled back once he proved himself in the program. He initially had no particular interest in or affinity for cooking. But that changed as he realized the Dualis program within Liliyot, run in cooperation with the nonprofit, Elem, could mean a second chance. “The program showed me I could accept authority – something I had trouble with previously. And the friendships I made there are for life.”

After Aviv completed the Dualis program, Shmuel and the Liliyot social worker felt he would benefit – and have more opportunities – if he served in the IDF. The army had exempted him but, with the restaurant's team advocating for him, he was accepted to an IDF combat unit. After a year of service, he received early release, and went back to work in restaurants, rising to the position of kitchen manager. Invited to a celebration at Liliyot which re-opened as a rebranded restaurant, Malka, he dropped in – and was asked to stay. He’s now back on staff as a cook, mentoring other youth like him. “I talk to them one-on-one and see so many similarities with my life at that time,” Aviv says. “I think that my example motivates them – I see first-hand how meaningful it is for them to have a role model who understands where they come from and knows what their potential can be.”

Today, he is 24 years old, on excellent terms with his mother, living with his girlfriend in a sub-unit in his mother’s home, and working full-time at Malka. He’s thrilled to be able to interact professionally with Dualis’ partner at Malka, Israel’s top celebrity chef, Eyal Shani. What is Aviv’s dream? “I would love to become financially stable enough to be able to devote time and money to doing good for others. Paying back and paying forward – that’s what can lead to a better world.”

Dear friends,
As our Dualis team looks back on a year of intensive activity, it’s an appropriate time to reaffirm our mission: Dualis seeks to improve Israeli society by making it more inclusive, encouraging equality and acceptance of the “other” as a key outcome of our programs, among both direct program participants and, through a ripple effect, within their families and communities. This “big idea” has been promoted over the past year through a number of specific programmatic objectives: the new social businesses we’ve established; the launch of a new large-scale replication program for Dualis’ restaurant sector initiatives; the expansion of a social business MBA track; and our ongoing advocacy work to promote legislation and regulation that supports the expansion of the social business sector.

The Dualis Social Investment Fund has been fortunate to gain the support of a range of philanthropists and investors who believe, as we do, that while the social business model is disruptive, it is also exciting, with the promise of welcome change in the business sector. From our experience, social businesses offer a challenge and opportunity to entrepreneurs – those who are starting a business as well as those who are well-established and even prominent in their fields – to invest time, effort, and resources in providing opportunities for people in need of support.

Dualis has been at the forefront of efforts to change the long-term paradigm of the Israeli business sector. We directed investments as part of the Dualis Yozma Fund, established in partnership with the National Insurance Institute Funds, providing opportunities for at-risk youth and young adults, single mothers and people with disabilities, enabling them to learn a vocation, hone their life skills, and gain valuable on-the-job experience. We worked hard to help guide the successful academic year of Israel’s first Social Business and Impact Investing Academic Center, which we initiated in cooperation with the College for Management Academic Studies and with the Rothschild Foundation. And we continued to agitate and advocate for an Israeli business environment that not only tolerates but embraces the social business model.

In another exciting development, we’ve developed a highly-replicable model for social businesses in the restaurant sector. Our goal is to scale up on-the-job training and mentoring in existing restaurants – impacting young adults at risk on a national basis across the different regions and communities in Israel. We already have our first set of committed partners to support the program and are actively seeking to expand the consortium of funders who will make this promising project happen.

Through these and other activities, we believe that social business development is here to stay. But most important is that we keep our main focus on the individuals whose lives are impacted by Dualis programs. They are the reason we and our philanthropic partners are working hard and making generous investments, in order to help our program participants gain the training and personal support they need to lead more satisfying and stable lives.

With the start of the Jewish New Year, we are honored to welcome three new board members to the Dualis Board of Directors. Each one brings valuable experience and expertise.  We welcome Rachel Sharvit, former Deputy Director General and Director of the Youth Department at the Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Services; Avinoam Armoni, Chairman of The Academic College of Tel-Aviv – Yaffo who has held prestigious positions that include Chief Executive Officer of The Museum of the Diaspora and VP for External Relations at the Hebrew University and Joseph Gitler, Founder and Chairman of the National Food Bank, Leket Israel, which is the leading food rescue organization in Israel. We thank Prof. Tammie Ronen and Eli Mizruch who have left the board after a period of devoted service, and deeply appreciate their commitment and meaningful contributions.

We are enormously grateful to all of our partners, supporters, investors and friends who have joined us in this exciting endeavor. 2018 and beyond promise to bring excitement and innovation to the social business field, and we at Dualis are looking forward to helping shepherd those efforts for the benefit of the entire Israeli business sector.
Allan Barkat, Founder and Chairman Sharon Landsmann, CEO

Dualis Yozma: Impact Investing in Social Businesses Shows Great Promise
By Zvi Ziv, Chairman


Established as part of the Government Social Initiative Fund led by the National Insurance Institute Funds to boost investments in the social business sector, Dualis Yozma has made six investments in social businesses, totaling $600,000. Our work has benefited from the development of a broad-based network of partners from the nonprofit, corporate, and philanthropic sectors in Israel and abroad. These partnerships support Dualis’ efforts to ensure diversity in the business models of the various social businesses we support, as well as in the populations who benefit from the businesses’ training, mentoring, and employment programs.

The mission of Dualis Yozma is to develop models of effective social businesses. This is achieved by investing in new businesses such as Klikit and Hashavia which employ diversified populations. Successful models will then lead to scaling up programs on a national basis across the different regions and communities.

To achieve these goals, we rely on the generosity of visionaries from the business and philanthropy sectors to provide the investment resources that social businesses need in order to prove they have what it takes to succeed on both counts. We have especially benefited from the endorsement and hands-on investments of leading entrepreneurs, who are motivating an entire sector through their leadership by example.

We applaud the outstanding work of the social businesses in our network and invite the interest of additional investors who would like to be part of this vitally important, high-impact program.

Zvi Ziv is the Board Chairman of Dualis Yozma and the former CEO of Bank Hapoalim.

Hashavia is a new, Dualis Yozma-supported social business that promotes economic independence for people with disabilities. The business, which was conceived and initiated in cooperation with entrepreneur and accountant Yonat Yehoshafat (CPA) together with Minga (The Arena for Social Businesses), trains, mentors, and hires certified bookkeepers with disabilities. The company provides organizations and corporations with remote bookkeeping services from Hashavia’s office in Tel-Aviv. Dualis and its portfolio of social businesses are among Hashavia's satisfied customers.

The company’s social program enables people with disabilities to earn a living in the profession they trained in and to grow and fulfill their professional abilities in a supportive environment that has been modified to meet their needs. In addition to offering an opportunity for financial independence, Hashavia provides employees with a peer community. As of the company’s start-up in 2018, Hashavia now has four employees with disabilities.

Klikit is a social business that provides scanning and data entry services to Israeli corporate clients and trains, mentors, and employs young adults on the autism spectrum. It was founded by Dualis Yozma together with the entrepreneur Eitan Varman. Amir Goldstein, a prominent business executive who is active in the field of employment for people with special needs joined Klikit as Chairman. The company seeks to provide work skills and employment for young people with disabilities while promoting the “greening” of the Israeli business sector by helping to facilitate a paper-free work environment. Dualis launched Klikit in cooperation with Beit Ekstein, a large nonprofit that provides services to people with autism.

The business opened in 2017 and now employs seven young adults with autism and two senior citizens in the program. Klikit makes it possible for young adults with autism to achieve some measure of economic independence as well as a sense of personal fulfillment and belonging.

Malka Restaurant
Malka, a kosher meat restaurant in central Tel Aviv, is being celebrated as a rebranding of the Liliyot restaurant, a long-time social business that was the first in Dualis’ portfolio. Malka is part-owned by Israel’s top celebrity chef, Eyal Shani. As it quickly becomes one of the trendiest eateries in the city, Malka is demonstrating daily that the social business model can be a huge success – both in terms of the growth and financial health of the business, and for the at-risk youth who comprise a large percentage of its workforce.
(See Aviv’s story, page 1).

Run in cooperation with Elem, a nonprofit that helps at-risk youth, Malka trains disadvantaged youth to work in an active restaurant environment while providing intensive personal mentorship, including training in social skills. Since Malka’s previous incarnation, Liliyot, began operations under Dualis’ guidance nine years ago, over 250 at-risk youth have graduated the program and found steady employment. Directed by the restaurant’s head chef and a social worker, the training program lasts one year, during which time the participants earn a minimum wage salary. With acclaimed chef Eyal Shani now an active partner, Malka has great hopes for its financial success and its future impact on many more disadvantaged youth who will be provided with the skills and support they need in order to build productive lives.

Operating from within the historic Ticho House in central Jerusalem, Anna demonstrates daily that a social business can be a success story. A unique partnership between Dualis and the young entrepreneurs of the Mona Group restauranteurs helped create a social business that combines an elite cuisine with a successful social program, while earning accolades in the media, including The New York Times.

The at-risk youth employed in Anna's apprenticeship programs benefit from training in an institution of the highest and strictest professional standards. They are motivated to learn, achieve, and excel.

ANNA has grown steadily since its launch in August 2016 to reach a financial break-even point. Working in partnership with the “Hut Hameshulash” nonprofit, ANNA currently employs ten youth between the ages of 16 and 22, all of whom participate in an on-the-job vocational training program to become professional cooks. Three have already graduated the program and now work in other restaurants in Jerusalem. The entrepreneurs who founded Anna know that incorporating a social program in the daily business is not a burden, but, rather, empowers the brand by instilling a sense of higher purpose among the staff and other stakeholders. The many customers who dine at Anna every day help demonstrate the value and successes of a social business.

Mataim is a kosher dairy restaurant located at the heart of the spectacular botanical gardens in the Ramat Hanadiv Nature Reserve near Zichron Yaakov.

The restaurant operates an in-house social program for at-risk youth, providing them with theoretical and practical training by a professional staff, together with employment and full wages. In the past two years, the program had 21 participants, all at-risk youth; after a major renovation in recent months, the restaurant is actively recruiting new participants.

As with all of Dualis’ social restaurants, by working in a functioning kitchen of a commercial restaurant and having to deal with the pressures and strict standards of a normative working environment, participants develop strong personal and vocational skills. This experience provides them with a vocation that is in high demand and helps to provide them with the character to carry out their work in a high-pressure environment.

Mataim is a relaxed and gracious venue for catered private celebrations and business events. Alongside Mata'im are meeting rooms and an auditorium equipped with the latest technology -- the perfect site for seminars, staff meetings, training sessions, lectures and workshops.

Café Ringelblum
Café Ringelblum is a kosher dairy coffee house located in one of Beersheba’s underprivileged neighborhoods. Operating as a social business since 2010, it has become a second home for youth at risk in the region.

Café Ringelblum operates a yearlong apprenticeship program in which between 9-12 youths are trained as cooks and waiters. Fifty young people have successfully completed the program since its inception. The social program, which has some 70 graduates to date, is run in cooperation with the ERETZIR nonprofit and the Beersheba municipality. A detailed program is tailored for each individual, based on personal goals which are defined together with a social worker, addressing all aspects in their lives that may affect their training.

Café Ringelblum is experiencing a revival since Kampai, a group of local restaurateurs which has joined in the project, is bringing a new wave of entrepreneurship, and providing employment to the program's graduates in the group's restaurants in the region.

Tavshil Hevrati
Tavshil Hevrati (Cooking for Coexistence) is a corporate catering business that trains and employs older Arab women who have never worked out of the home. By providing a dozen women with a welcoming work space, vocational training, and a steady salary, the business makes it possible for them to gain a measure of financial independence at a critical time in their lives. Now under a two-year contract with the Shultz Company, a large catering and food distribution firm, the trainees and employees of Tavshil Hevrati provide thousands of cooked meals each month to corporate sites all over Israel. Tavshil Hevrati employs 15 women in the program.



NOKBeauty is a concept beauty store established by Sharon Konopny, a successful entrepreneur who also founded the popular LAKA chain brand.

The social program, led in partnership with the Tel Aviv Municipality Job Center, offers young at-risk women a program in vocational training and employment with ongoing support from a dedicated staff of peers.

Professional training begins with basic beauty skills and expands to skills in customer service, personal grooming, and related topics.

NOK Beauty opened in 2017 with three participants. The experience gained by working in a modern and fashionable environment, in an establishment that provides a unique customer experience to its clients, provides the program's graduates with mastery of all the latest beauty techniques together with a high awareness of customer service practices.

A detailed program is tailored for each individual, based on personal goals which are defined together with a social worker, addressing all aspects in their lives that may affect their training.

Café Ringelblum is experiencing a revival since Kampai, a group of local restaurateurs which has joined in the project, is bringing a new wave of entrepreneurship, and providing employment to the program's graduates in the group's restaurants in the region.

The Courtyard Jerusalem
The Courtyard (formerly Klafte) is a busy retail clothing store in the heart of Jerusalem, offering new and unique fashion items and accessories. As a social business, The Courtyard operates a year-long program for at-risk women ages 18-22 from the greater Jerusalem area. The store has recently moved and is now located very centrally – 4 Shlomzion Hamalka St. in Jerusalem, adjacent to the popular Café Kadosh.

The program currently trains and employs seven young women who were directed to the project by Jerusalem's municipal welfare authorities, and it has graduated 12 trainees. At The Courtyard, the participants experience for the first time work in a normative business environment while receiving full wages for their labor. With ongoing support from an on-site social worker, they learn life skills, including personal responsibility, service, quality, and respect for authority while gradually building the required vocational skills that are needed for their future employment.

During 2017, Dualis developed The Courtyard brand to include Klafte and its counterpart in Jaffa, as part of a growing chain of women’s clothing stories that are part of the Dualis social business portfolio.

The Courtyard Jaffa
The Courtyard is a boutique shop in the Old Jaffa flea market which sells fashionable clothing and accessories.

The shop employs up to 25 Jewish and Muslim at-risk women living in disadvantaged circumstances. Many of them have dropped out of school, have poor reading and writing skills, and have repeatedly failed to keep a steady job. The Courtyard offers them, for the first time, a valuable opportunity to transform their lives and contribute to a successful and vibrant business.

Besides providing the participants with a steady job, participants benefit from the mentoring of an on-site social work. The program also trains its participants in styling, design, and work procedures commonly found in large retail stores. The social program is now running in partnership with the Tel Aviv Municipality.

A new Dualis Initiative
“Food for Employment” Program: Scaling up the successful social business restaurant model

As evidenced by its growing portfolio in the restaurant sector, Dualis’ work in the food services industry has become one of its flagship efforts. Eight years of experience in the sector has led to accolades for social businesses such as Malka (formerly Liliyot) in Tel Aviv, and ANNA in Jerusalem. These and other Dualis restaurants and catering businesses have become the basis for an ambitious scale-up program that seeks to transform 100 existing restaurants into social businesses over the next five years, providing training and employment annually for 500 disadvantaged young adults. With prominent chefs such as Israel’s top chef, Eyal Shani, as well as Moshiko Gamlieli, prominent chef and owner of MONA, now involved as partners in Dualis social restaurants, an effective model for management, training, and ongoing employment of young people on the margins of society has been developed and is ready to be replicated across the country.

With the support of initial grants from the UJIA of the United Kingdom and private donors, Dualis recently hired Efi Goldfarb, an experienced project manager, to begin program planning and to launch the creation of a network of restaurants that will become social businesses. The organization is also in the process of hiring a program social worker. A pilot replication program will launch in the near future in several Tel Aviv restaurants.

Dualis’ five-year plan includes building a central management team, identifying 100 restaurants that are open to the idea of becoming social businesses, investing in their transformation, and placing 500 youth each year in the program. “The food services sector in Israel is in constant, urgent need of thousands of trained cooks and other staff,” says Sharon Landsmann, Dualis' CEO. “We believe that scaling up social restaurants will be an excellent solution, as it will create an ongoing pipeline of trainees and employees, while providing real-life on-the-job training opportunities for many hundreds of young people who might otherwise remain for life in the social welfare system.” Dualis is actively seeking philanthropic investments to move the program forward.


Building the Social Business Ecosystem

Nurturing a New Generation
of Social Business Entrepreneurs:

The COMAS Social Business MBA
By working hands-on with developing social businesses, Dualis is having an impact every day on the lives of people who are given a valuable opportunity to build a productive life. But Dualis is also focused on structural change in the Israeli business sector, making it more open to launching, supporting, and sustaining social businesses. To help achieve that, the organization, in partnership with the Rothschild Caesarea Foundation, established a first-ever MBA track in social business development. Hosted by the College of Management Academic Studies (COMAS), which runs the largest MBA program in the country, the new program opened in the fall of 2016 with 30 MBA students and an incubator for the development of social business start-ups. In the two school years 2016-17 and 2017-18, some 60 MBA students were part of this program.

Dualis staff and leadership are deeply involved in the development of this program, in partnership with COMAS. Senior staff members meet with students, conduct case studies with students as part of their practicum, host demo days for new businesses, and run meet-ups and seminars related to social business start-ups. Dualis stakeholders continue to invest a great deal of time and resources in the success of this program, which is expected to help create a new generation of social business entrepreneurs.

Dualis at the Forefront of Social Business Development
Throughout 2017 and into 2018, Dualis was at the leading edge of advocacy and education around the development of the social business ecosystem. Dualis staff organized and participated in numerous seminars on impact investing, lectures at Israeli colleges, presentations at national and international forums, served as keynote speakers at industry events and were active in advocacy at the legislative level.

Dualis founder Chanoch Allan Barkat was recognized for these and other achievements with the 2017 Midot Award for Social Action. The Midot award committee noted: "Through your admirable personal involvement you have established and continue to advance the social business industry in Israel. An important factor is your founding and Chairmanship of the Dualis Social Investment Fund, while in parallel you continue your many extensive business activities. This social activity, beyond being a breakthrough, is both a symbol and an example.”
