The children will show Gere the progress they have made while taking part in joint youth soccer teams that advance values of tolerance and respect between Jews and Arabs.

“Richard Gere is a close, personal friend of former president Peres, and he is an enthusiastic supporter of Peres Center for Peace initiatives since the center was founded in 1996,” the Peres Center said. “During Gere’s previous visit to Israel in 2003, he met with children to encourage their activities promoting co-existence.”

Gere is also in the process of filming for a movie he is set to appear in, Oppenheimer, which is being directed by acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Joseph Cedar.
