Dialogue of Cultures: The Israeli Experience.
Iram, Yaacov
The future of the Israeli society, like the future of all democratic, multicultural societies, will be determined by the ability to maintain a meaningful dialogue among its diverse groups: Jews and Arabs, immigrants from diverse cultures and socio-economic strata. This paper presents and analyzes an educational program to promote understanding and to advance meaningful acceptance and peaceful coexistence as an end result of a continuous dialogue among students of diverse cultures. The paper discusses how the dialogue among diverse cultures may take two forms, tolerance and pluralism. It describes the Israeli society's social cleavages and pluralistic composition, with many divisions in its Jewish majority and the Palestinian minority. The paper outlines the educational program (at Bar-Ilan University) known as Education for Human Values, Tolerance, and Peace. (BT)
