OT95 – My children do not consider the Palestinian people their enemy – Rittie Katz with Julia Fisher

Feb 26, 2012

Julia Fisher talks to Rittie Katz. She is Jewish. I met her in a noisy shopping mall on the outskirts of Jerusalem recently. I had heard about her work as a teacher to both Jewish and Palestinian children and wanted to find out what motivated her interest in reconciliation. When Riti was 40 years old, she and her husband moved from America to live in Israel bringing with them their four young children. For Riti this was a huge and difficult move – as she now describes.

Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
