Ofek is the regional center in Jerusalem for study and enrichment, creation and research, for gifted kids in elementary and middle school. It serves as a merit based center for students who excel in their studies. The center is a "place for thought" where students come weekly to a unique study program. As a central part of Bechor’s mission, he established a successful program that made regular, in-depth conversations with students and teachers routine. Using these conversations as a base, Bechor created individualized study plans for each of the 1400 students to make sure that every student’s needs were consistently reviewed, addressed and met.

One stage school. Two Languages. One place.

'One stage | Two Languages. One place ' - The school was established in Jaffa for learning Arabic through theater. Its goal was to increase the number of Jews who speak Arabic in the State of Israel; it had about 200 students, ranging from ages 6 to 90.

Learning language through acting requires students to master text, understand its social context, and express its ideas by performing in front of strangers. The program continues to this day, with the pedagogical approach Bechor created.
