Peace Education

As the first families’ children began to grow they established their own pre-school. This naturally led, in turn, to the creation of the Primary School and the development of the concept for a unique, bilingual, bicultural curriculum, which has since been a model for other schools.

Father Bruno and other residents also quickly established the School for Peace, even before there was a building for it. The programmes still bring together Palestinian Arab and Jewish Israeli young people for joint activities to get to know one another, and through dialogue to explore issues that both groups experience as Israeli citizens.
