The Executive Director of ASCD joins a group of U.S. educators traveling to Israel on an education mission sponsored by the America-Israel Friendship League. The educators visit the Gesher al Hawadi school, which was established by the Hand in Hand Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel. Located in an Arab town, the school has equal numbers of Arab and Jewish students; offers a curriculum that teaches Judaism, Islam, and Christianity; instructs in both Hebrew and Arabic; and reaches out to the community to promote greater understanding among Arabs and Jews.
