In Israel, the official school system hardly deals with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the way to cope with it. - Over the years, grassroots organizations and NGOs have developed various philosophies and methodologies to cope with the violent war-like reality. The oldest organization in this field is The Jewish-Arab Center for Peace at Givat Haviva, located at the heart of Wadi 'Ara region. The area is characterized by its mosaic of population where Jews and Palestinians live side by side. - The Center integrates projects of instruction, education, research, and community involvement among diverse populations in Israel and Palestine. It helps design programs to different target groups and audiences. Its Department of Education runs programs for teachers, students, and trainers. Moreover, it develops creative techniques in an effort to highlight some key concepts: equality, tolerance, and acceptance of “the other.” Knowledge and information are essential, as well as creating a supportive environment for the children to talk and express their feelings.
