Bringing Together Arab and Jewish Middle School Students for a 6-Month Team-building Football (Soccer) Program

Every two weeks, Marcia’s Light organized meetings between two middle schools — one Arab and one Jewish. In each meeting, each team will learn the language and culture of the other team and will train together to enhance their team- and relationship-building skills, football as a centerpiece. There are 40 participants, 20 from each school, aged 13-14. Their teachers and school administrators will also be collaborating. The Israeli Ministry of Education has also been involved.
