      Summaries of the 2 first meetings of the interfaith encounter for Arabic speakers in south Jerusalem – Beit Safafa, Talpiot and Arnona:

       

      The first meeting was held at Shlomo Alon's on 18 May with 9 participants – Jews and Muslims. We started with an introduction by Aida and Shlomo on the challenge of starting interfaith encounter in Arabic and on the importance of language in bringing the hearts closer and putting down barriers. We stressed the rules of group conversation – respect for the view of the speaker and patience for their language. We do not correct the speaker's language and do not comment on the level of their Arabic.

      After the introduction we went into in-depth acquaintance between participants. The acquaintance developed to an interesting conversation about the personal history of the participating friends in their use of Arabic. As most participants are high-school teachers we naturally went to discuss the place Arabic has in Hebrew schools in Israel – mandatory or optional, existing teaching materials and the place of interfaith encounter between teachers and pupils in the processes of teaching the language. The meeting went for two and a half hours.

       

      The second meeting took place on 15 June at the home of Yafa Rotstein with 7 participants.

      The framework for the second meeting was an article written by Shlomo Alon on the concepts of language in the Quran. This meeting took the form of a joint study group. We read the article while using the original Quranic text and its different translations, in Arabic and in Hebrew. We were lately blessed with a new and excellent translation of the Quran into Hebrew by Prof. Uri Rubin. One of the group's participants – Mr. Yisrael Shrentzel – was a main helper of Prof. Rubin and his presence in the group was extremely helpful. The conversation went for some three and a half hours.

       

      Our third meeting is scheduled for 20 July. It is planned to take place in Beit Safafa and deal with the place of a bi-lingual and multi-lingual education in our region.
