Two-Day Youth Encounters

Givat Haviva remains the national leader in Jewish-Arab youth encounters, bringing groups from Arab and Jewish schools together for two days of intensive, facilitated encounters for both the students and the educators who accompany them.

The two-day, physical encounters are designed to allow for adequate time for the students to get to know each other and begin to address the issues that emerge, while leading them to productively explore themes of shared interests and shared society in an intense experience that is remembered as pivotal for years to come.

After the violent events in May and the long isolation due to Covid, schools were eager to resume these foundational face-to face encounters, and Givat Haviva is gratified to return to bringing them together on campus.
