Connections between Jews and Christians
Last Sunday, December 19th, 2021, the Galilee Dreamers traveled to our new partner school, Notre Dame High School, in the village of Mi'ilya. We first met at the school, where we were greeted with a beautiful spread of pita, za'atar, cheese and vegetables. After a social activity, we walked through the streets of Mi'ilya to the church. At the church we were hosted by the leaders of the local council about the roots of the community of Mi'ilya. The leaders spoke about the connections between the Jewish and Christian populations in the Galilee and the reality of living in a shared society. Afterwards, the teens walked around the Christmas Market, laughing and chatting. Having enjoyed this special time together, everyone looks forward to future GD activities.
