participant year: 
At Givat Haviva, I was finally able to read and decode the Arabic language that remained impenetrable to me during those years in Iraq. The daily Arabic courses were intense and professional and through volunteering at an elementary school in Arara, a nearby Arab Israeli town, I was able to put my Arabic skills to use. After a week of vocabulary and spelling tests, the kids also provided a welcome reprieve.
