WAS-NS school children in Arab Language Day event at the Knesset
Friday, 14 July 2017

On Tuesday July 11, three children from 4th grade took part in an Arabic Language Day event at the Knesset. In front of Knesset members, Arab leaders, school principals, researchers and specialists in issues of identity and democracy, Jewish Primary School student Roni Gil Reinshreiber said, with disarming simplicity, "Hi, I’m Roni. I’m 10 years old and study at the Primary School of Neve Shalom - Wahat al-Salam. I want to tell you that I speak Arabic and Hebrew. I love to speak with my friends in both languages at my school and I am learning Arabic and Hebrew with two teachers - an Arab and a Jew. My wish is that all students will learn Arabic and Hebrew like me, so they’ll live together and understand one another, and then there will be peace."

We in Wahat al-Salam - Neve Shalom are here in order to make the dream of Roni and her friends come true.
