One more youth encounter before summer

The School for Peace recently organized one youth encounter for 60 Palestinian and Jewish students from the Reali and Acre's Terra Sancta schools. As usual, the youth, meeting the "other side" often for the first time, met in Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam where they stayed for 4 days.

During that time they discussed issues that relate to the conflict in uni-national and binational settings, in small and larger groups. They also participated in informal activities together during which they could strengthen their relationships.

The School for Peace will now start preparing for next school year's encounters with various high schools in Israel, based on how much funding will be available. We are very grateful for the support you provide to the Youth Encounters: you help create a peaceful future for the Jewish and Palestinian youth!
