About PAN Israel

The Israeli branch focuses on 3 main channels (the Cs):

      • Content
      • Community
      • Collaboration


Developing professional knowledge in Hebrew and administering it through various channels:

  • Website
  • Newsletters and emails for subscribers
  • Webinars and lectures
  • A 4-meeting pilot program called “WellMed”
  • Social media: Facebook page, Facebook group and Instagram


Build a supportive and active network of professionals who are interested in promoting knowledge and practice on the health benefits of a WFPB (whole food plant-based) diet. The community members receive the knowledge we develop, they share information, and they consult and assist us with creating more connections and opportunities (for example, introduce us to the training manager at their workplace so we can hold an educational event for the staff).


Focus on collaborations and partnerships connecting PAN Isreal with key organizations in order to promote projects together, such as position papers and participation in conferences, etc.
