VIDEO: Israeli Arab and Jewish Youth Share Team Sports, Create Friendships

Israeli diversity

Jewish boys, together with Muslim and Christian Arabs, all play together at Israel’s Maccabi Haifa-Nahalal youth football academy. Apartheid?

In the heart of the stunning Jezreel Valley in the Galilee, a very special youth football team flourishes.

This unique soccer squad consists of 13-year-old players from different Israeli backgrounds and cultures. These diverse athletes hone their skills on the grounds of Israel’s oldest communal farming village, Moshav Nahalal, which was founded in 1921.

True coexistence is achieved every day through their shared passion for the game and with the support of their families.

It’s a full documentary but very interesting. It could change your perspective. Watch and see!
