25 Years of Shared Values: Reflections from Hand in Hand's Students, Teachers, Principals, and More...
At Hand in Hand our values and mission are not just empty words or promises; they permeate every aspect of our work—from the education being provided in our schools, to the activities planned in our communities, and the way we operate as an organization.
As we mark 25 years of shared Arab-Jewish education and partnership, we turned to the people who have made our work possible this past quarter of a century, and asked them about the value they feel most represents their time at Hand in Hand.
Enjoy these reflections—which are presented in no particular order—from various teachers, students, staff, principals, and parents across Hand in Hand’s six schools and communities.
