Jews and Arabs to form ‘human chain’ for coexistence

Hundreds of Jews and Arabs will hold hands in a human chain calling for reconciliation this afternoon at 3 p.m. at the Megiddo Junction in Wadi Ara.

The event is titled, “Choosing to Engage,” and is hosted by Givat Haviva, an educational institute that deals with Arab-Jewish coexistence.

The human chain will extend on both sides of Road 65, the main highway running through the region, which is home to a large Arab Israeli population.

It is “a symbol of coexistence and shared life, specifically at this tense period,” the organizers said in a statement.

The event will be followed by a ceremony at Megiddo Junction, including activities for children and “listening circles.”
