Jewish, Arab Youth Join Hands for Peace

Students belong to educational network that works to encourage coexistence between different sectors

By |

Some 200 high school students from the “Amal” network of schools joined hands in forming a ring around Israel President Reuven Rivlin. What’s special about this group is that it includes students from all four of Israel’s modern “tribes” – secular Jews, traditional religious Jews, ultra-Orthodox Jews and Arabs.

The event saw students come from all over the country to the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, where Rivlin told them:

“It is through you that we have come to understand that we can live together if we study together. You are the next generation of Israel’s leaders and you must always remember that we are destined to live together in this country, and that there is hope together. We all have the same hope, and we all have the same ability to dream.”
