"Rythmusica" project in Itamar Ben-Ami and Hasan Arafe schools
Entity: A New Way
Project Type: Core
Duration of Support: 7 years (2005 - 2011)
"A New Way" offers joint activities for children, bringing together two schools from Arab and Jewish communities
The project consists of weekly encounters (in the fields of art or science- rhythmic, drama, ecology, etc.), enabling participants to become familiar with the culture of 'the other' in a variety of areas: customs, holidays, day-to-day life, religion, music and dance, and more. The project also includes meetings for the parents and families of participants.
"A New Way" projects are accompanied by volunteers from both communities. The facilitators are Jews and Arabs and instruction is both in Hebrew and Arabic.
