This year, the Pluralistic Spiritual Center is teaming up with the School for Peace in Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam to run a new Massa-Massar program focusing on Human Rights. Nine Jews and thirteen Palestinians from different high schools (age 15-17) are participating in this program, which includes one encounter every month for 8 months. The first encounter took place on April 25-26. The participants learn how to identify violations of human rights in their own environment, for example in connection to disability, women, children. They are also encouraged to report about the observed violations to the major in their cities or towns. In addition to meeting during encounters, the participants will also be traveling together in various places in Israel. Thank you all for your important support: You are making a difference!!
