The bus came to a halt in an open parking lot outside Herzliya. From the window I could see a banner that read “The Peres Center for Peace - Mini World Cup.”  I gathered with seven other volunteers from my Masa Israel program, Israel Way Tel Aviv Internship Experience, and we were briefed on our job descriptions for the day.  I was given a neon green shirt that read STAFF, a folder with a French flag and a roster listing my team of ten kids - five from the West Bank and five from Ashkelon.  The facilitators explained that this event was a coexistence exercise for children from different backgrounds and our job was to integrate the kids as best as we could and just have a good time.
