The Second Arab-Jewish Race organised by “Runners Without Borders” was held on November 9th 2018 in Jerusalem. The goal of the race was to strengthen the connections between the eastern and western parts of Jerusalem and encourage cooperation between the Arab and Jewish population.
Peace and coexistence are a way of life at Tabeetha, so our secondary pupils and staff gladly embraced that challenge. They joined runners from all walks of life to raise awareness and become part of a “bridge” promoting tolerance and understanding. Running together from Jebl Mukaber in East Jerusalem to the mixed neighborhood of Abu Tor was a great opportunity to connect and create new friendships.
Our Grade 7 pupil, Elias Fahel, won 3rd place. This was a remarkable achievement and we are very proud of, not only Elias, but all our runners who took part.
Special thanks to Mrs Reis and Tabeetha’s Running Club.
