Hi Eyal:
I had some difficulty getting onto to since it said my email name is already in use.. ?? Anyway, would be very open to joining the dialogue on this essential critical subject. I have several friends who live in Israel also working on this issue. Do you know Yitzhak Frankenthal of the Arik Institute or Elana Rozenman? Let me know. There is also a very helpful resource for conducting training in healing racism from the study circles organization in Pomfret, CT and they often send their materials free. Go to or see if any of my articles on my site can be of help at Shalom for now! Deri
