Encounter between students of the two schools – A-Salam in Majd el-Krum and Dekel in Karmiel.

The encounter focused on the customs of Passover.

After the Kids from A-Salam were welcomed at Dekel school, all pupils gathered together and we explained to them how the day is going to look like and what we are about to do in it.

The day had three parts:

  1. Explanations about Passover and why it is celebrated.
  2. The differences between the Jewish Passover and the Christian Easter and why each community celebrates their Holiday.
  3. The students were divided into three mixed groups for creative activities with the art teachers on various aspects of the Holiday: food, religious figures, symbols etc.

Finally the students had a joint football gave and we concluded the day.

Summary and pick-day for the project

The children met, together with the educators, in A-Salam School and held a joint conversation about the year's activity. The children shared about their experience in participating in joint activities with children from the other sector, what did they gain from it? How did they feel? What was new? What needs to be improved?

We also got feedback from the parents when the children spoke about the support and encouragement they received from their parents to participate in such encounters that bridge between the children and remove prejudices and stereotypes. Finally, each student wrote a sentence about peace and living together. We concluded with sports games in mixed groups, which was very enjoyable for all.

The encounter on May 25th was divided into three parts:

First we held a Bingo game with names: each student wrote his or her name on the board and then each one of them chose nine names for their personal board. Then we played the Bingo game.

In the second part, the schools choir sang, in Hebrew and in Arabic, the song of Eric Eninstein: "I and you will change the world". We all joined the choir and sang along.

The third part of the encounter was dedicated to Jerusalem. The jids were divided into working groups, each focussing on a different activity. One was working on a crossword puzzles about sites in Jerusalem. Another was answering quizzes on what we know about Jerusalem. A third group was trying to create as many words as possible from the letters of the word Jerusalem. And another group was composing a jigsaw puzzle with a photo of Jerusalem.
