The Jerusalem Foundation - Peace Kindergarden / Israel
The Peace Kindergarten founded by the Jerusalem Foundation is housed in the YMCA building in the heart of the city of Jerusalem. The aim is to teach the children (who start attending kindergarten at the age of two in Israel) about peace and co-existence, to break down stereotypes with them, and to demolish prejudice. In the Peace Kindergarten, 120 children aged between two and five years are taught by an Arab and a Jewish teacher; both Arabic and Hebrew are spoken. Together, the children experience multicultural activities from Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
