Hand in Hand school in Jerusalem: we are all brothers and sisters

Jewish and Arab children share a school, learn about each other’s cultures, and become friends.

Israelis and Palestinians are deadly enemies, right? This has gone on since 1948, the establishment of Israel. Each side has repaid hurt with hurt, attack with attack, blame with blame.

Here is a school doing something wonderful about it. Sylvia Kryz has said, Hate begets hate, vengeance only leads to vengeance, violence feeds on itself. Only love can stop the endless cycle. Only love can turn hate into love.

A growing group of courageous teachers, parents and children are following this philosophy to change their world.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
