Israel's Peace Players bring Jewish and Arab young people together through basketball. The Managing Director, Karen Doubilet, is originally from Toronto. She explains that the program starts working with children at age six, and many participants will continue into adulthood.
The program features teams for boys and girls, with the girls teams providing a particularly welcome opportunity for those from communities in which female sports are discouraged.
Jewish and Arab girls take a break from practice to talk about how the program has improved their lives.
