Revision as of 13:14, 12 December 2011

All Rights portal 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: The English site is used only for demonstration of capabilities. Most of the links will take you to the Hebrew site. Please use automated translation tools such as Google Translate. Not the most accurate but will let you get the gist of what we do!

All Rights is a non-profit organization whose aim is to establish a multilingual national information repository on the Internet about the rights granted, in all aspects of life, to residents of the country, and the ways in which these rights can be realized. The content on the Web site is written by rights experts who work in the public sector, in organizations and associations, and in academic institutions.

Our main target is to improive the curently low take-up of rights in Israel and specifically in the area of social rights, especially among the weaker parts of the population.

Main Facts

  • We have more than 50,000 monthly unique visitors, comparable to more then 2 Million in the US
  • More than 1,800 Hebrew pages released to the public
  • More than 300 pages in writing
  • More than 250 pages in the Arabic site
  • About 100 partners. Some of them are shown here.

Short History

  • We started developing the site in November 2009
  • The site was launched, stealth-mode, for use by the general public on September 16, 2010
  • Official public launch was done in late November 2010
  • We received great support from the Government agencies, NGO's and Universities

All Rights Principles

More internal links

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.

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 2011


Who 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.

I found a mistake, how can it get fixed?

If you found a mistake, or if you have additional information that may be relevant for a particular article, please advise us by clicking the “Suggest a Change” 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 system 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 “Suggest a Change” 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.
