SWESRS Social & Community Group – Hand-in-Hand: crossing boundaries and forging links

Thursday September 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

We are delighted to welcome Noa Yammer and her team, presenting on-line on Hand-in-Hand, a beneficiary from this year’s SWESRS High Holy Days Appeal.

Hand-in-Hand are engaged in vital educational projects, bringing together Jewish and Arab children in Israel, through a growing network of bilingual, integrated and multicultural schools. 7 schools across Israel are now catering for over 2000 students with the mission of preparing them to live in equality and respect.

The presentation will include an introduction by Sue Jackson, the Synagogue Vice-Chair, who has visited a Hand-in-Hand school through her educational work in Israel and contributions from two young graduates, one Jewish and one Arab, speaking from their homes in Israel and providing their personal perspectives on the experience of being educated together.

This event offers a unique opportunity to find out about some critical and pioneering work being undertaken in Israel against the backcloth of mounting community tensions and conflicts. Your support for this timely and illuminating event will therefore be much appreciated.

If you require any further details please contact Robert Young on 0208 5302514 or rmyoung1942@yahoo.co.uk.
