Convinced that understanding comes through building real relationships in the real world, Adam Tilove, head of the Jewish Community Day School of RI (JCDSRI), and Abdelnasser Hussein, head of the Islamic School of RI (ISRI), conceived of the idea of bringing fifth-grade students from their respective schools together.

"Building these relationships will be a truly transformative experience for our students and their families."

– Adam Tilove

 

The ensuing twelve-week partnership unfolded at the Center for Dynamic Learning (CDL) in Providence, where students were challenged to explore issues of identity, society, and friendship by creating connections and building bridges.

"We partner with our friends at JCDSRI to educate our children about the Rhode Island community specifically, and the larger global community."

– Abdelnasser Hussein

The program was funded with a grant from our Bliss, Gross, Horowitz Fund, which supports programs that develop connections between the Jewish community and greater Rhode Island. The deadline to submit proposals for this year’s awards is June 10.
