In a society defined primarily by the conflict between Arabs and Jews, Israelis and Palestinians, Hand in Hand has created a growing and thriving new model of integrated schools for Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens. Now with over 2,000 students in seven schools, Hand in Hand is making a tremendous impact for Jewish-Arab partnership and coexistence.
Over the next ten years, Hand in Hand aims to create a network of up to 10-15 integrated bilingual schools, supported and enhanced by active communities, involving thousands of Israeli citizens.
Hand in Hand is a model of what Israel can and should look like, where its Jewish and Arab citizens can live in a shared society based on equality, mutual respect and peace.
