Acre school of management teaches lessons in Arab-Jewish Co-existence
Walk across the campus and you’ll see Muslim women in head scarves, Jewish men with kippot, and everything in between.
The Sir Harry Solomon School of Management at Western Galilee College in the northern seasidecity of Acre (Akko) is an unexpected symbol of hope during tense times.
The college as a whole is a model of coexistence. Reflecting the general population of the Galilee, approximately half the students are Arab and half Jewish. Of the 186 students studying economics, logistics, IT management, marketing and other business-related disciplines at the three-year-old School of Management this year, 59 percent are Jewish and 41% Muslim, Christian or Druze nearly half of them female.
