Student Teachers Call for Children's Trips to Hevron


At the end of a tour around Hevron and the Cave of Machpela (Cave of the Patriarchs), young student teachers frrom Efrat College specializing in early childhood education called for trips to various holy sites to start at even this young age.

The young teachers-to-be were there as part of a project where they saw other kindergartens who are operating under a constant threat. The initiative is part of the college-sponsored program where a guided tour is provided to some 80 students in Hevron and Kiryat Arba.

During the tour, the students saw complex situations arising in the kindergartens that impacted the children's perception and behavior.  Little boys would play "Arab and Soldier", while the little girls were either the "rock throwers" or "defenders".
