Fostering cooperation between Jewish and Arab educators.
“Our purpose is to promote the usage of Modern Standard Arabic language in Israel.“
The Arabic Speaking Cooperation Circle (CC) promotes the usage of Modern Standard Arabic language in Israel. CC members invite those of the Jewish faith to become acquainted with and appreciative of Islamic culture, by studying language and literature. They study books written by Najib Mahfouz, an Egyptian writer and the winner of Nobel Prize for Literature in 1988. Coming together in this way promotes peace, one meeting at a time. A highlight of their work to date has been a deep sense of cooperation and enduring friendship between Jewish and Arab educators, despite escalating tension in the region.
