The Nalaga'at ("please touch" in Hebrew) nonprofit center is a stage for arts and culture that promotes an equal dialogue and leads to social change, with the belief in the human spirit and its ability to touch and to make a difference. The center is home for: - Nalaga'at Theater - home to the only deaf-blind theater groups in the world. - Blackout Restaurant - where blind and visually impaired waiters accompany the guests to a meal in total darkness. - Kapish Event Center - where deaf and hearing impaired waiters invite the guests to communicate in sign language. - Workshop Center - glimpses to the world of deaf and blind people through once in a lifetime experiences.
