Jews, Circassians, Muslim and Christian Arabs all play together at the Maccabi Haifa-Nahalal youth football academy.
In the heart of the Jezreel Valley in the Galilee, on the football fields of Nahalal, a very special youth football team flourishes. This unique soccer squad consists of 13 year-old players from different Israeli backgrounds and cultures. These diverse athletes hone their skills on the grounds of Israel’s oldest communal farming village, Moshav Nahalal, which was founded in 1921.
“True coexistence is achieved every day through the passion for “the beautiful game” demonstrated by these young men and their families.” read the notes on the video.
