The encounter took place at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem - French Hill.
At first we went over some vocabulary that we learned in the previous encounter, each participant shared a word that he learned during the last encounter. We met for an hour in one group, the first part of the time we spoke in Arabic and then Hebrew during the other part, and then we divided ourselves into two groups.
The last fifteen minutes before the end of the encounter we went back to sit in one group, and summarized the encounter.
During this encounter we discussed to two main topics:
The first topic: we talked about expressions used for blessings and congratulating according to the customs and traditions of the two societies – Jewish and Arab – giving examples such as:
congratulations, best of luck, to 120, May you have your baby soon, and many others.
And Condolences expressions, such as: God bless his soul, may he rest in peace, we wish it would be the last pain.
Each participant chose one of the expressions in Hebrew or Arabic, explained it, and gave an example of how it is used.
The second topic: we presented hobbies pre-printed on paper, translated into Arabic and Hebrew languages, each participant then presented some of his hobbies and explained about his favorite hobby.
We got refreshments during the encounter, the encounter was very successful, and we learned a lot during the encounter.
