Encounter of students from the two schools – Dekel, Karmiel & A-Sallam, Majd el-Krum
The theme of the encounter was the sanctity of Friday for the Muslims and the sanctity of the Shabbat for the Jews.
The children were divided in mixed groups, each facilitated by bi-lingual facilitators who guided them with relevant working sheets.
Each of the groups wrote about the two days in the two communities. The pupils noted the similar and different, for example:
Friday for the Muslims
Shabbat for the Jews
We ended with a feedback conversation in which the children shared how wonderful, successful was the day and how much joy and fun it was.
First all students gathered in the school yard and divided into groups. Each of the groups took one of the tasks for the day, such as:
At the end of the day we held joint activities for the students: music, dancing and a joint lunch.
To conclude: we had an inter-cultural encounter between the students of both sectors, which testifies to the willingness of the students to contribute together good deeds for the benefit of the community and the environment and to take advantage of this opportunity to do something good, small or large. The students enjoyed very much the joint work and each one of them felt they contributed to the success of the day.
We divided the students into three groups. Each group had an Hebrew specking facilitator and an Arabic speaking facilitator.
Students expressed their satisfaction and joy from this encounter and the connections and conversations between them, with mutual respect and acceptance. We all look forward to the next encounter.
