Friends of the Arava Institute
October 28, 2009
in my town the alumni of the Arava Institute came to teach our community all about environmental issues. They were exciting and got us all excited about the issues. While they were teaching us we also got to hear what it was like for North American, Israeli Jewish and Arab, and Palestinian students to study and live together in a tiny community. How they learned so much about each other. Without exception they talked about how the program transformed them. Now there are three students in our community who are applying to go study there. Great work. G-d's work. Meaningful for the earth and us people who live on it.
