On Thursday, December 4th 2008, the encounter took place in A-Sallam School with some 120 5th graders.

The students coming from Karmiel and the local students met in the courtyard of A-Sallam School around a model of the Qa'aba, built in order to demonstrate for the students. The Religion Teacher Nader Taha showed the students how the different parts of the Hajj – the pilgrimage to Mecca – are implemented. His told the students about common elements in Judaism and Islam, in this case: in the story of Abraham sacrificing his son.

In the end of the day the students ate a joint meal, prepared by the parents' board. They greeted each other and fare-welled with a smile of happiness and enthusiasm for the next encounter.
