Building Peace & Partnership Between Arabs & Jews in Israel presented by Hand in Hand- In a society defined primarily by the conflict between Arabs and Jews, Israelis and Palestinians, Hand in Hand has created a growing and thriving new model of integrated schools for Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens. Now with over 2,000 students in seven schools, Hand in Hand is making a tremendous impact for Jewish-Arab partnership and coexistence.

Over the next ten years, Hand in Hand aims to create a network of up to 10-15 integrated bilingual schools, supported and enhanced by active communities, involving thousands of Israeli citizens.
Hand in Hand is a model of what Israel can and should look like, where its Jewish and Arab citizens can live in a shared society based on equality, mutual respect and peace.

Ms. Shada Edris Mansour, Hand in Hand parent and national community coordinator
Ms. Noa Yammer, director of international communications

The Streicker center of Temple Emanuel in NYC sponsors a series of free lectures and interviews conducted by the Israeli diplomat, Ido Aharoni.  Lectures will be in English. While Carmi Gillon will no doubt discuss military and political issues, David Blatt will provide a change of pace in terms of what we normally think is the American-Israeli interface, so we hope it will be an interesting experience. 

Session 1: Aharoni will interview Carmi Gillon, the former head of the Israeli Shin Bet. 

Session 2: Aharoni will interview the American-Israeli basketball coach, David Blatt, who coached in both Israel and the US NBA.  

Please register for these lectures here.  After the lectures, we invite you to log onto a BAI-based discussion about what we discussed here

Virtual Tour Along the Israel Trail- Tzippi Moss backpacked the 1000-kilometer Israel Trail with her husband and 18-year-old son over a two-month period. From pine-covered hills to saw-toothed desert, she battled flooded rivers, scorching heat, and soul-sucking mud, unsure if the journey would make or break the family. The goal was to raise funds to find a cure for the neurological killer ALS, the disease that took the life of her beloved mother-in-law. In this zoom meeting she will share some of the lessons she learned along the way from the landscapes and people she encountered. Her book, Angels & Tahina, is a testament to the power of family and impossible dreams, as well as a love letter to a country forged by faith and courage.
