Galil: A School with No Walls takes us inside the Galil-Jalil school for Jewish and Arab children to show how participants learn tolerance and each others¹ language for the present as well as understanding and mutual acceptance for a brighter future.  A mixed staff of teachers must constantly strive to reconcile their own cultural identities with the premise of this school for cooperation and tolerance.
