Students from the pluralistic Leo Baeck Education Center in Haifa and students from the Arab village of Ein Mahal in the Lower Galilee will perform together in an original musical production inspired by the Friends Forever Program, Yedioth Ahronoth reported this week.
The Arab-Jewish musical “Step By Step Sauwa Sauwa,” which is based on he Broadway show A Chorus Line, is performed in Hebrew, English and Arabic and takes place in an "ideal Israel," where Jews and Arabs live together in peace...
Lee Azulay, 18, a student at Leo Baeck, said "the most important thing about the project is the message it sends - if we can coexist on the same stage, we can coexist in the same country."
Muhammad Abulil, 17, who attends the high school in Ein Mahal, said the musical "tells the entire world that people can coexist without fighting."
The musical was even brought to stages in London and Switzerland and, according to Fesler, was "received very warmly."
