In February 2017, Hand in Hand Alumni Fatima Yahia and Bar Itamari stood together in front of thousands at a gathering for Jewish-Arab cooperation and said: “We are here to assure all of you that living together is possible.”
Mohamad is the Community Department Director and one of the founders of the Hand in Hand Wadi Ara School. Below is his story and his famiy's story, in his own words: 
Mahmood Abu Saleh graduated from the Galilee school in 2009 and is now a student in Be’er Sheva studying engineering at Ben Gurion University.
Adan graduated from the Max Rayne Hand in Hand Jerusalem School in 2014 and is now in her first year of a communications degree at Hebrew University. She wants to be a journalist in order to bring a more objective voice to the media. 
In Hand in Hand's all-new alumni program, we are organizing meetings where alumni support one another and work together to bring the values of inclusion and civic action to the world around them. Tamar Borman, a 22 year old graduate of our Jerusalem school, is taking the lead on this project and many others.
