Rugby in Israel is not a well-known sport, but the focus of this project on peace and reconciliation has made it noteworthy beyond the pitch. The values of rugby, with fierce opposition on the pitch and strong fellowship off the pitch, is an important tool to break down traditional mistrust between different religious and racial groups in the country.

This project started early in 2018 and is now working in four cities across Israel, with twelve schools regularly, and bringing in a further 32 for festivals. These include Jews, Druze, Arabs, and Christians; local people and refugees. Our work is currently in Pardes Hana, Tel Mond, Tel Aviv, Ayelet Hasahar, Haifa, Modiin, and Rehovot.
