Prominent Visitors to Hand in Hand

Hand in Hand has attracted international attention for our ground-breaking educational model and shared community frameworks. Below are some of the prominent visitors who took time to see our school and/or meet with our students, teachers, parents, and community members throughout the country: 

Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin, who said: 

You are proof that we can live together in peace and we can’t let the difficult experiences, like what you went through this week, harm our faith in our ability to live together.

Pope Francis I 

Sean Penn


Carlos Santana

I’ve always thought that Jews and Arabs should speak each other’s languages and be able to flow easily between Hebrew and Arabic. It is important that Jewish and Arab children learn together – next to each other, on the same desk. This will ensure that they will not become enemies.

– Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav


There are brave people in this city who are creating the Jerusalem of the future for all of us. People here at this school who look complexity in the eye and move forward together.

– Rachel Azaria

AFT President Randi Weingarten
