PEACE with Penny SEASON 4: Penny S. Tee Interviews Roi Silberberg Director of The School for Peace, August 29, 2023
We spoke with Roi Silberberg, the Director of The School for Peace located in the mixed village in Israel, Wahat al Salam Neve Shalom which is a unique and inspiring cooperative village jointly founded by Israeli Jews and Arabs.
The School for Peace is an uncommon educational institution founded in 1979, offering Jewish-Arab encounter programs in the spirit of their mixed Jewish and Arab community.
Although they have worked on Peace for over forty years, unfortunately in September of 2020, they had two arson attacks and ironically, The School for Peace was burned down. Still until this day, they don’t know who committed the crime. They have continued teaching conflict resolution, holding classes using other buildings there, and within the town, and have fundraised to rebuild the school. They’ve demonstrated their dedication and perseverance for Peace.
We hope you will join us. May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
