opportunity to walk the walk

In addition to gaining academic skills and knowledge about environmental issues, a student at the Arava Institute gets the chance to live in a mixed community including Palestinians, Israelis and Jordanians, including Jews, Moslems and Christians and to live, eat, study and socialize together 24/7 for the semester or year.

Even during difficult times, the talking and living together happens. It's miraculous and amazing.
