Jewish-Arab Encounters - Elementary School
The School Encounters program uses Israel's elementary school system as a platform to promote equal and shared society. It provides fifth and sixth grade Jewish and Arab children and teachers, from neighboring schools, the opportunity to interact – often for the first time. The program demands a 3 year commitment from schools and includes a series of facilitated meetings and activities aimed at the teaching staff and the students. This program is used as a springboard to broader partnership and many of the schools who have taken part in this program are now involved in our Shared Learning Initiative.
