Abstract: It takes courage for Jewish and Arab parents in Israel to swim against the social and political current by sending their children to one of the five integrated Jewish-Arab schools in the country, rather than to the segregated schools that constitute the norm. The first part of this paper, extracted largely from an earlier publication by Hand in Hand Centre for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel, presents the perceptions and experiences of four Jewish parents and five Arab parents. In the second part, taken largely from a research report submitted to the Bernard van Leer Foundation, University in Jerusalem anthropologist Zvi Bekerman describes research with children who attend the Jewish-Arab schools and urges the schools to push towards further transformation.
