A visit from the Rashi School

Recently, in Jerusalem, we had the opportunity to meet with students from the Rashi School in Massachusetts. The Rashi School is a K-8 Jewish day school and their 8th graders were in Jerusalem to learn about, explore and experience Israel; we jumped at the chance to meet them!

Kids4Peace staff along with a group of youth from Kids4Peace Jerusalem who had previously attended summer camp in Boston met the students in downtown Jerusalem. We had a great day with the students from the Rashi School, talking and learning more about what Kids4Peace is doing in Jerusalem. We heard from them that they especially enjoyed learning a bit of Arabic to take home with them. The students from the Rashi School and youth from Jerusalem greatly enjoyed the opportunity to talk and get to know one another. We believe, as does the Rashi School, that it is important for youth from different backgrounds to have real opportunities to connect with one another and we were happy to provide that here in Jerusalem!

This weekend a group of 7th graders from our first year program will be learning more about Orthodox Easter in the Old City of Jerusalem while Roots will be in the north engaging in seminars and discussions about racism. As always, it’s an exciting time here at Kids4Peace Jerusalem and we look forward to sharing it all with you!
