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.
