More than 7000 Jewish students from the North will begin learning Arabic in February as part of a new project run by the Language as a Cultural Brige project of the Abraham Fund Initiatives, with assistance from the Jewish Agency for Israel. Costing more than NIS 7 million, the project aims to create understanding and cooperation between the two communities using language as a way to break down the cultural barriers. The Language as a Cultural Bridge project was developed and operated by the Abraham Fund Initiatives in order to contend with the continuing failures in the teaching of Arabic in Israel, and is based on a successful learning model that can be implemented throughout the country. The project includes the instilling of values of tolerance and cooperation and the shattering of stereotypes and prejudices towards Arabs. The curriculum is taught in grades 5 and 6.
