School Encounters

For the most part, Arab and Jewish school students are segregated throughout their education. This creates a dynamic ripe for early formation of stereotypes and fear of the other, as children from the two groups rarely meet until after high school.


Over the last 9 years, the Abraham Fund Initiatives has implemented the School Encounters Program in schools across Israel. Through the program, two nearby schools are paired for a three-year, intensive program bringing students, staff members, and parents together. Our facilitators implement a curriculum focused on helping students find common ground and build relationships with each other.
