Ukuleles for Peace

Visit website

The goal of Ukuleles for Peace (UFP) is to bring Jewish and Arab children together to play in an orchestra with ukuleles. The project brings together children from two local schools in the Jewish city of Hod HaSharon and the nearby Arab city of Tira. Weekly sessions are held with the students in their own schools and the groups are then brought together for extra practices and performances. Involvement in this project brings children and parents in the two communities closer together and helps to break down barriers that would otherwise exist between the two.
