Learning Together, Living Together

Building shared society. One school, one community at a time. 

Hand in Hand: Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel is building inclusive society, partnership and equality through a network of integrated, bilingual schools and shared communities of children, youth and adults throughout Israel.

Founded in 1997, Hand in Hand's success and longevity demonstrate that children, families and entire communities of Jews and Arabs in Israel can live and work together with mutual respect and friendship.

Jews and Arabs — learning together, living together — and changing the world together.
