Hagar School: Creating a Common Future in Israel through Jewish-Arab Education

Hagar is located in the Negev, a region that is home to about 627,000 people, about thirty percent of whom are Arab citizens of Israel. Yet Hagar is the only non-segregated school in the Negev. Its uniqueness stems from the fact that it has created a space in which Jewish and Palestinian children not only mix (each group makes up fifty percent of the student body) but learn together every day in a bilingual atmosphere of mutual respect.
