140 Jewish and Arab students in JVP-Community soccer tournament

JVP Community (Bakehila), established by Knesset Member Erel Margalit, a non-profit organization that operates in Jerusalem in order to change the social reality of children and teens from disadvantaged neighborhoods in the city, held a unique soccer tournament dedicated entirely to the struggle against violence and racism on sport fields. Gilo Alef's soccer team won the tournament, overcoming Zalman Aran's soccer team 2-0. Gilo Meuhad School for Sciences and Arts placed third.
