The Tel Aviv municipality has founded “My Neighborhood” elementary school in its southern region. It will have pupils from all walks of life – including refugee’s children. In an outrageous move, they have cleared half of the buildings associated with the longstanding religious school “Roots”. This partnership was forced upon two principles, Shachar Feinshtein and Elior Tourgeman. They must arrange for living in the same compound where non-Jewish refugee children learn just 40 steps away from orthodox children, while working in an extremely challenging neighborhood where gentrification, secularization, and the demand to expel refugees tear its community apart.
