All Rights is a non-profit, collaborative project, built and maintained by a large group of Israeli experts building an encyclopedia for all information about Rights and Entitlements in Israel. All Rights is intended for use by the public at large, as well as by the municipalities, organizations and centers that assist the general public with access to rights and realizing them.

IMPORTANT: While the English site is still considerably smaller than the Hebrew one, we have been blessed with the great work done translating Health related articles, by AACI's Shira Pransky Project with generous assistance from the Fellowship Fund.

Please note that any link appearing on the website with a small [ע] next to it means that the content is currently only available in Hebrew; such links will take you to the Hebrew site. Links without an [ע] lead to pages in English.

All Rights main target is to improve the currently low take-up of rights in Israel and specifically in the area of social rights, especially among the weaker parts of the population. We have decided to tackle the challenge by building a collaborative, Wikipedia-like Web site. As such our organization is a small mix of technologists, advocates, editors and trainers. We plan to remain small! We have already shown that we can bring different organizations to work together towards the good of the public.

Main Facts

  • We have more than 150,000 monthly unique visitors, comparable to more then 6 Million in the US
  • More than 3,300 Hebrew pages released to the public
  • More than 400pages in writing

  • About 100 partners. Some of them are shown here.

The All Rights initiative works in cooperation with experts in the field of rights who are active in associations, public bodies and academic institutions, in two main channels of action:

  • Content partners: Experts in various rights, who write and update the content which appears on the site, in the framework of the All Rights knowledge communities.
  • Access partners: These partners, as part of their work in social services, aid organizations, or legal clinics, are in touch with populations that are eligible for rights. These partners use the All Rights Web site in order to assist those who turn to them in order to realize the maximum rights to which they are entitled.

  • Amitay's annual in-kind donation is valued at $ 95,000
  • We have received the Israel Tax exempt status (Tofes 46)

Israel's official language is Hebrew and as such All Rights primary site is in Hebrew. In our quest to serve the whole population of Israel, All Rights (Kol Zchut) faces some very interesting challenges:

  • Israel's second official language is Arabic, but the amount of translations of legal materials is minimal
  • There is a very large Russian speaking 'Olim' (immigrants) population
  • There is a large population of Ethiopian 'Olim' (immigrants) that speak various languages
  • The above populations are also those where entitlements consumption is low!
  • On top of that there is an on-going flow of Olim (immigrants) that need information in English, French and Spanish

All Rights is a very large database of information about Rights and Entitlements. As such, the cost of maintaining a truly up-to-date, comprehensive multilingual environment is huge.

We have decided to take a practical approach that follows these principles:

  • Develop the technology that will help us maintain at minimal cost multiple translations
  • Initial focus on Arabic translations. Luckily we have very strong partners in this area.
  • In many cases we will translate only page titles and redirect to Hebrew content. The idea is that most Arab-speaking citizens also have a fair understanding of Hebrew
  • We assume this also holds true for many immigrants
  • We intend to start also Russian translations before the end of 2012

What is Kol-Zchut (All Rights)?

The Web site is a non-profit, collaborative initiative that unites experts in the field of rights who are active in dozens of organizations, associations, public bodies and academic institutions. The Web site is operated by a company for the benefit of the general public. It is a non-profit organization that is funded by social funds and private contributions.

How do I know that the information on the site is up-to-date?

The content experts who belong to the knowledge communities make an effort to update the Web site whenever there is additional information or a change that affects the rights that appear on the site. However, sometimes the updates are delayed. Therefore, in cases where you are uncertain about the relevance of the information, we recommend performing the following two checks:

  • The date of the last update appears to the right of the article’s headline. This will let you know when the article was last updated.
  • A link to the government agency responsible for implementation of the rights appears in many of the articles on the site.

We are unable to guarantee that the information is up-to-date at any point in time.

There are many rights which don’t appear on your Web site. Why not?

The All Rights system is a new initiative, and the content topics are added to the Web site at the rate we recruit knowledge communities in the various fields. Although dozens of articles are added to the Web site each week, we are still far from covering each rights topic. If you are an expert in a specific field and are interested in joining our knowledge communities, please contact the knowledge community manager, Eden Fuchs.

How do I know if a link leads to an English page or a Hebrew page?

Although all of these portals are in English, not every individual entry is yet translated. To date there are only a few hundred pages that were translated. Any link appearing on the website with a small [ע] next to it means that the content is currently only available in Hebrew. Links without an [ע] lead to pages in English.

I found a mistake, how can I get it fixed?

If you found a mistake, or if you have additional information that may be relevant to a particular article, please advise us by clicking the “Change Proposal” button that appears at the top of each page.

Why should I register on the site?

After you register on the site you will be able to create lists to follow topics that are of interest to you, and to receive updates when new information has been added or is changed in the relevant areas. In addition, you can browse the site as you like, using the “My preferences” menu.

On the Wikipedia Web site, anyone can add content to the site. I registered on the All Rights site and I still can’t add content. Why not?

Just like with Wikipedia, All Rights is a cooperative system. However, in contrast to Wikipedia, the authorization to edit the All Rights content is given only to experts in the specific field, in an effort to preserve the quality of the information and to prevent mistakes or inaccuracies. If you would like to join one of the All Rights knowledge communities and receive authorization to edit content, please contact our knowledge community manager, Eden Fuchs. If you would like to make a comment, add specific content, or alert us regarding an error, please update us using the “Change Proposal” button, which appears at the top of each page.

I don’t see any advertising on the Web site. Who funds you?

All Rights is a non-profit initiative that is funded with money contributed by organizations and private donors. Its content is contributed by our knowledge communities, which are made up of organizations, government institutions, academics and professionals in various fields.
