A three weeks field experience for university students to discover the Middle East

We offer an opportunity to learn about the area and its unique locations, to be introduced to Israeli and Palestinian realities, as well as meeting members of different communities and joining social activities with them.

At such a critical historical moment for the Middle East, we want to show and share the possibilities for peaceful coexistence of different people, cultures and religions. It is not our intention to propose an ideal model, but rather to offer on-site experiences, and listen to the testimonies of both the community leaders and ordinary people active in the area.

Program participants will explore three interconnected aspects in depth.
