Support young Jewish & Palestinian Reality Shapers

by Sadaka-Reut Arab Jewish Youth Partnership Vetted since 2017

Summary

Sadaka-Reut: Arab-Jewish Youth Partnership, established in 1983, has educated thousands of Jewish and Palestinian youth to act for socio-political change in Israel. The Partners in Shaping Reality project promotes a space for interaction and discussion between Jewish and Palestinian students on college and university campuses, encouraging them to take an active, responsible role in changing their environments.

Challenge

Jewish and Palestinian students attending the same colleges and universities around Israel barely engage in meaningful interaction, despite supposedly sharing the same spaces. Opportunities for dialogue and joint action are scarce. This continuous segregation only feeds the cycle of racism, discrimination and violence by intensifying existing negative feelings and fear of "the other". Sadaka-Reut challenges this deep division in Israeli society that stands in the way of justice and equality.

Solution

Partners in Shaping Reality engages around 70 Palestinian and Jewish students in campuses around Israel in a year-long educational program. Through group activities and tours, participants are able to engage meaningfully and deeply with themselves as well as "the other". The knowledge, expertise and experience that they gain through facilitated workshops and dialogue are then brought into practice through social campaigns and initiatives which the groups plan and implement.

Long-Term Impact

Palestinian and Jewish young adults, who have been separated throughout most of their lives, even while studying on the same campus, engage in meaningful interaction and experience bi-national partnership as an effective way to promote positive change in their societies. Many of them spread the message of justice and equality to their academic and home communities. For the last seven years, this project has generated graduates who have continued in the field of community work and activism.
