The three young men seated at one of the tables in a little coffee shop in Rehavia look, at first glance, like any other young people having a chat over a cup of coffee. However, these particular three Jerusalemites – two haredi and one secular – are part of an ongoing coexistence project that aims to build bridges between those two communities while helping haredi participants with academic studies.

The secular man is Or Rapoport, a 29-year-old Hebrew University student and the co-director of nonprofit organization Tziyunei Derech (Landmarks). He is one of the activists behind the initiative known as Beliba Homa – Hebrew for “a wall in its midst.”
