      On Tuesday 16th of December 2003 the Karmiel - Majd el Krum group resumed
      its activity in a new format. The group has planned an annual strategy and
      series of meetings that will gradually include more people and go deeper.
      The group will be rooted in the school communities of Kalanit School in
      Karmiel and El-Salam School in Majd el Krum and will include first
      educators and then also parents. The main concept of the group is to
      jointly discuss religious issues and customs in a way that brings the
      hearts closer together among participants of the two societies.

      This meeting took place at El-Salam School in Majd el Krum and focused on
      the Holidays season. Decan Jirias Mansour of Kfar Rame talked about
      Christmas, a teacher from Karmiel talked about Chanukah, a teacher from
      Majd el Krum talked about the Ramadan fast and the Imam of Majd el Krum
      Sheikh Muhammad Kiwan talked about tolerance in Islam.

      Following the short presentations participants split into small
      interest-groups for joint discussion and then reconvened for summary and
      feedback.

      The group's coordinators are:
      Njiba Sirhan, School Headmistress of El-Salam School
      and
      Osnat Aram, School Headmistress of Kalanit School
