THE HAIFA SCHOOL
THE HAIFA COMMUNITY
“As parents, we cannot lay the burden of creating a shared future on the shoulders of our children. We, the adults, must lead the way.”
-Hand in Hand CEO Shuli Dichter
Hand in Hand’s adult communities are an essential way for us to expand our impact beyond the schools and create a broad-base for a shared civil society in Israel. Read more about our community approach here.
The Haifa community is made up of hundreds of Arab and Jewish adults who are committed to creating a shared society. They engage in activities that both build their friendships as well as dive into the conflict that underpins Jewish-Arab relations.
Some of these include:
- Community hikes and tours
- Holiday celebrations
- Community dialogue
- Local shared activism
