(TEANECK, NJ) -- The Puffin Cultural presents Through Others' Eyes, a photography exhibition featuring works by Arab and Jewish Israeli teenagers. The exhibition is the final event of a larger program organized by Givat Haviva, a non-profit organization dedicated to integrating society in Israel. The exhibition will be on view until August 5. The Arab and Jewish youth photographers will be present to share their experiences at the Puffin Cultural Forum event on August 5 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.
Arab and Jewish children rarely come into contact as they are separated by their communities and education systems. Givat Haviva brings together the two groups of students between the ages of 16 and 18 to meet over the course of 25 sessions to engage in dialogue and to study photography.
To reserve tickets for the event on Sunday, August 5 email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Puffin Cultural Forum is on 20 Puffin Way (off Teaneck Rd.) in Teaneck. Call 201-836-3499 or visit www.PuffinCulturalForum.org.
