I wanted to thank you for the article that came out recently about Hand in Hand (“Modeling coexistence in Israeli classrooms,” March 28). It is a great article, summing up the issues we face and our work in a way that is both accurate and inspiring.
We have seen repeatedly that as important as the work being done is, so is the telling of it to ever-widening circles of people. Only when people start hearing frequently about real examples of inclusion and Jewish-Arab daily cooperation will they start to recognize the viability of shared living as opposed to conflict. So thank you for this contribution to our efforts.
