The Arab-Jewish Community Center

The AJCC is the only municipally-founded community center catering at once to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim populations in Jaffa, thus constituting a paradigm shift in the way local authorities relate to shared civic participation between Israel's Jews and Arabs. The Center was established in 1993, bringing together conflicting populations and educating towards reconciliation, recognition and cooperation. Both facilitated and unmediated encounters between members of Jaffa’s various ethnic and age groups transpire in the Center, including children from Jewish and Arab kindergartens, elementary and high school students, and adults.
