Givat Haviva's International Department was quite busy this past month, with visitors from all around the world coming to learn about our work and mission for a shared society, as well as visiting the surrounding area. Recent visitors have included a delegation of various youth movements from Europe and North America, a Hasbara Fellowships group, 20 teachers from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany, the Olive Tree Initiative with our friends Daniel Wehrenfennig and Susan Seely, the Center for Regional Engagement, University of California Irvine, Santa Barbara Hillel, and the German-Israel Exchange group that is part of our Children Teaching Children program outreach.

In addition to all the busy work the International Department has been involved in this past month, our very own Lydia Aisenberg has published her book,  Either Side of the Divide, to rave reviews. The book is a collection of articles published over the last 20 years in English language newspapers and magazines in Israel and abroad, and "is the rare book that allows a reader entrance into the lives and events of people who are the heartbeat of today's headlines" (Review by Pnina Moed Kass of Esra Magazine).
