The Director of the Ministry of Justice led civics workshop for 10th grade

Emi Palmor, the Director General of the Ministry of Justice and two of her legal aids ran a civics workshop for tenth grade students at the Max Rayne Hand in Hand Jerusalem School. They brought a case of discrimination for the students to analyze from different perspectives, and then "judged" the case, and decided what they thought was the correct way to rule.

The Director General and her staff have been running workshops in schools around the country in order to raise awareness about racism and discrimination in Israel, and the ways in which they are combating this. The Hand in Hand students were engaged and curious and asked many questions about Israeli policy in cases of discrimination.

 "We want students to see things from a new perspective," said Palmor, "In other schools, students often use racist and discriminatory language, but that wasn't the case here. The students were intelligent, curious, and open-minded.  I could see that integrated education really works."
