Massa-Massar: A Journey of Discovery



The Massa-Massar program is an interfaith learning and peace-building program targeting 30 young Jewish, Christian and Muslim Israelis, from the ages of 15 to 17, boys and girls, from all over Israel.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Most young Jews and Arabs in Israel live in separate communities and attend different schools; they don't get to learn about each other's culture and often have stereotyped ideas about the "other" and ignore the commonalities that exist between their cultures. Massa-Massar provides young people with an opportunity to meet and develop trusting relationships. The program promotes the values of respect for differences and empathy for injustice.

How will this project solve this problem?

After a preparation phase, the participants travel together for 6 days to different symbolic places. Activities address identity, diversity, recognizing each other's humanity and empowering the young participants both in formal and informal ways.

Potential Long Term Impact

The program creates a network of young people who will know the "other side" and be aware of the shared heritage of the different cultures that exist in the region. Participants get out of the program with a will to advance dialogue and peace.
