The Torch of Peace

Peace through sport

"The Olympic Values Education Program" is a general education program in the field of physical education classes. The program is designated for all students in the system, among them, students with physical disabilities in the Israeli population-  Jews -  orthodox and non-orthodox,  Christians, Arab, and Druze, and in the theoretical, technological, agricultural & professional course of study.

The program aims to implement the Olympic values in the hearts and minds of young people. Sport is a universal language. Sport teaches us how to strive for excellence in everything we do. How to live in friendship and peace, how to respect ourselves, others, rules and regulations.

Sport has its own language, and everyone can speak it. It’s a language of hope, where anything is possible.”

The Olympic committee of Israel had chosen an Arab elementary school from Sakhnin and invited its students to visit the Olympic Experience Museum and meet an Olympic athlete.
As a gesture, the children prepared a wax torch and during their visit they will give it as a gift to the Olympic Committee of Israel.
