Alex Weiss wrote about her experince:
“For this week’s tiyul, we had the opportunity to visit communities in the Gaza Envelope. It was so meaningful to hear Tsameret Zamir’s experiences living in Netiv HaAsara. Instead of letting the fear of violence take over her life, she uses her passion for art to shed light on the possibility for peace and resolution of the ongoing conflict. The Path to Peace project is a mosaic built on the gray security wall that separates the moshav from Gaza, and can be viewed by both communities. We were able to play an active role in this project’s message of mutual hope, and tolerance and kindness for others by writing a personal message on the back of a handmade ceramic tile and gluing it onto the wall alongside thousands of other pieces.”
During this week, we saw the students in action in their various internship places. Some students intern and work with their hands, while others work with computers, but all of them seem to be beneficial to the internships where they are placed.
