By Rachelle Lansky, Masa Israel Teaching Fellow in Rahat
When I thought about the idea of co-existence before coming to Rahat as a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow, I dreamed of a space where there were no boundaries, where all could be integrated through conversation as one collective culture. While I know this vision seems optimistic, what I’ve found while working in a Bedouin school is something that I never could have imagined before this experience.
