DOCUMENTARY SNEAK PREVIEW CLIP #2
"Dialogue at Washington High"
A new video by the local Dialogue to model how diverse high school students
come together in a classroom with a new quality of listening, to share stories and become closer.
"West Bank Story"
This award-winning,18-minute musical comedy set in the fast-paced,
fast-food world of competing falafel stands in the West Bank asks the question:
Can an Israeli Jew and a beautiful Palestinian couple's love withstand
a century-old conflict and their families' desire to control
the future of the chic pea in the Middle East?
Hand in Hand Schools -- http://handinhandk12.org/ --seek to spark revolutionary change in Israeli education and society by establishing a new educational paradigm: integrated, bilingual schools where Jewish and Arab children and their families learn and grow together. Hand in Hand's mission is to catalyze the creation of a network of integrated schools around the country, providing Jewish and Arab parents the option to send their children to schools where they can learn and interact with all their neighbors.
The Future Generation's Hands -- http://nablusyouth.com/ -- formerly Nablus Youth Federation, educates and encourages Palestinian youth in volunteerism, democracy building, communication and relationship building. Rejecting violence, they instill a spirit of cooperation from Jenin to Rafah, and across borders. They meet with Israelis and other Jews in Europe and North America, and across borders whenever possible. Located in the largest Palestinian city, they represent a great hope to spread a culture of respect and personal responsibility in the Middle East.
