Hundreds of Arab, Israeli children building ‘bridges to peace’ through tech

“On this day we strive for equality, to dream and to educate for peace, dialogue and the prevention of racism,” former President Shimon Peres said on Wednesday.

Addressing a crowd of some 600 Jewish and Arab youth gathered Wednesday, he made these remarks for the closing ceremony of the “Bridges to Peace” project in Petach Tikvah.

“In order to be great, you do not need a long sword but unity and dialogue between us. You will be the future leaders of tomorrow – don’t be afraid to take chances, to be curious and to dream big,” he told the youth.
