Arson attack on the Max Rayne Yad Be Yad Jerusalem School

The bilingual school Hand in Hand serves 600 Arab and Jewish students in Jerusalem and is a partner within the’Community Now?’ project. Last Saturday it became victim of an arson attack. In the aftermath, there was an enormous support from citizens, neighbors and public figures in Israel and around the world. Our partners from the Bezalel Academy Jerusalem and us are expressing our solidarity and are looking forward to continue our work. Since the last Gaza War, the challenges are growing for community oriented projects for social participation, but the current mobilization in opposition to racism gives us confidence.
