Hand in Hand

Hand in Hand is an NGO building shared society for Jews and Arabs in Israel through a network of bilingual integrated schools and shared communities. Project Harmony Israel is an initiative of the Hand in Hand schools, and serves as its official summer camp. Project Harmony takes place at the Hand in Hand schools in Jerusalem and Wadi Ara.

 

Hand in Hand's vision is to create vibrant and inclusive shared society in Israel through a network of integrated bilingual schools and organized community activities that bring together Jewish and Arab citizens on a daily basis. In Hand in Hand’s schools and communities, Jews and Arabs interact daily in an environment of equality and mutual respect. They learn each other’s languages, traditions and histories and openly grapple with difficult societal and cultural issues in a safe and respectful environment. They learn civic responsibility and the importance of actively working together for social change. They also understand the complexities of a shared Israeli society and the importance of dialogue between Jews and Arabs.

What began with two first grade classes in 1998, has now grown into a network of 6 schools with over 1,320 students. Over the next 10 years, Hand in Hand aims to create a network of 10-15 integrated bilingual schools, which will be supported and enhanced by organized community activities, altogether involving more than 20,000 Jewish and Arab Israeli citizens. This movement will set the stage for a genuine shared society in Israel.

We are also proud to work with Project Harmony, a partner organization that runs English-language summer camps for Arab Jewish youth in Jerusalem. Project Harmony creates youth camps that build lasting relationships by offering a wide variety of daily activities, including fine arts, music, athletics, teambuilding, community gardening, American Sign Language, and English games. They go on weekly field trips and also host guest teachers to lead week-long workshops. Every summer they also host a community event in which we invite families, friends and community members to join us in celebrating our campers' remarkable achievements.
