Nof Hagalil, formerly called Nazareth Illit, is a small and growing city in Israel's North, with about one-third Arab residents.  The municipality has yet to build a single school for Arab families, who either bus their children out or send them to local Jewish schools where their language, culture, and religion are not part of the learning.  The prevailing atmosphere in the city has long been one of separation and discrimination toward Arab families, and we know that the road ahead is long.

We are thrilled to announce that United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be donating proceeds from an award she recently received to Hand in Hand. The Gilel Storch Award is given by the Judisk kultur i Sverige (Jewish Culture in Sweden) to persons whose work has promoted democratic, universal and humanistic values.
