Into the Land: A Tale of Two Cities

Ramle and Lod’s very different models for Arab/Jewish coexistence

The third episode of The Times of Israel’s original ‘Into the Land’ docuseries — taking a deeper look at some of Israel’s most complex social, environmental and historical issues

Ramle and Lod are neighboring, mixed Jewish/Arab cities in central Israel that share a great deal in common. But when violence broke out across Israel in May 2021, one city burned while residents of the other remained relatively calm. How did that happen – and what’s the broader lesson toward building a shared society in Israel?

In this third episode of The Times of Israel’s new, original “Into the Land” docuseries, we explore two models of co-existence between Israel’s Jewish majority and Arab minority.
