When the heavy heat of summer coincided with the events of the Temple Mount / Haram al-Sharif, and with the law of nationality widening the political rift between Jews and Arabs in Israel, friends asked me, “How do you still believe in shared society?” And I replied, “Just come with me to Givat Haviva any day and you’ll understand.”
Afgelopen zondag 16 juli 2017 om 13.00 uur werd de fototentoonstelling “Through others’ eyes” in de Laurenskerk in Rotterdam geopend.
Givat Haviva marked the month of Ramadan with a traditional Iftar meal at the common dining hall. The meal, on June 8, was part of the day’s events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the occupation. Many guests attended the meal, including the mayors and representatives of the municipalities taking part in the Shared Communities program, participants from the various programs, representatives of peace organizations, members of HaShomer HaTzair and the Agial Youth Movements, and the Givat Haviva team.
Er is weer het nodige nieuws te melden. Het woord “stilzitten” moet in Givat Haviva nog worden uitgevonden! Allereerst was er de succesvolle jaarlijkse Shared Society conferentie met als thema “Drawing a Roadmap for a Shared Society”. Verderop treft u het verslag hierover aan.
