Having spent a considerable time in the Israeli security services I have made a radical career change some four years ago and became a teacher for social studies and history in a junior high school in Holon, Israel. In my second year of teaching I’ve founded a unique program in social studies whereby a class from a Jewish school and a class from an Arabic/Muslim school learned together. I've created this program as a part of my educational perception that in order to create a better society we, the educators, have to give the students the opportunities to acquire values such as pluralism, acceptance, respect and equality as part of their studies. I believe that one of the most efficient solutions to racism is acquaintance. The program is starting its third year. The last two years have been very successful and the program received many praises. My main goal is to make it a national educational program.
