The Art of Co-Existence

On the first day of 2011, young artists from the Leo Baeck school in Haifa and local elementary schools of different faiths – Bahai, Christian, Druze, Jews and Moslem- designed, painted and mounted their own unique tiles for the "Let the Sun Rise" Ceramic Peace Wall at Bet Hagefen in the Wadi Nisnass neibourhood of Haifa. The Wall is a tableau of hope, representing the children’s interpretation of the multicultural beauty of Haifa. This ongoing project is being led by Haifa Arab artist Abed Abdi.

This is one of the beauties of Haifa, the constantly untold story of co-existence.
