There is Another Way

Hand in Hand brings together thousands of Jews and Arabs in five schools and communities throughout Israel. In Jerusalem. In the Galilee. In Wadi Ara. In Jaffa. In Haifa.  We are proving on a daily basis the viability of inclusion and equality for citizens of Israel. 

Current events threaten to pull Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel apart. Fear, anger and violence are undermining shared living. But this is not the case at Hand in Hand. Our preschools, summer programs and community activity continue unabated in our five schools and communities. Our preparations for the 2014-15 school year continue, and as our network of bilingual schools and communities expands, so does our message to Israeli society: THERE IS ANOTHER WAY.
