The Teachers’ Lounge is an annual enrichment program for Jerusalem’s teachers and educators. Teachers have the ability to generate meaningful change, mobilizing against racism and prejudice and thus increasing tolerance and improving the climate of the city’s multicultural life. The vision behind “The Teachers’ Lounge – in memory of Shira Banki – is a Jerusalem that wears its diversity proudly and that heeds the call for mutual recognition and for dialogue among its communities of residents. And a Jerusalem that recognizes the value of its human, cultural, and visual variety as part of its wealth, uniqueness, and power. www.teachers-lounge.org (and their website in English)
In September 2022, Meir, Orla and Hanin from The Teachers’ Lounge joined us for a webinar – watch it on demand!
