Jointly celebration Tu-Bishvat and Purim

February 8th: Tu Bishvat

50 students from A-Sallam School in Majd el-Krum and 50 students from Dekel School in Karmiel participated together in this special Tu Bishvat activity.

They sang songs in both languages and worked in the classes with work-sheets.

Artistic activity was conducted by the teacher Nariman Asadi and each group presented the final work they produced. We watched a film about Keren Kayemet, its history and its work.

We all planted together trees and plants in the school.

This encounter took place at Dekel School in Karmiel.


February 21st: Purim

Some 70 students took part in this cultural-educational encounter around the Jewish Holiday of Purim. The encounter took place in A-Sallam School in Majd el-Krum.

The students of A-Sallam School learned about Purim through a text brought by Hadas from Dekel School.

Then they held various activities of painting and gluing masks and costumes; and watched together a play in Hebrew about the theme.

The goal was to expose the Muslim students to the Jewish Holidays so that they know why Purim is celebrated and can relate to the issue.
