This is a qualitative case-study of the Centre for Humanistic Education (CRE), an educational institution located in the Western Galilee region in northern Israel. CRE engages its Jewish and Arab teenage participants ~ an interpersonal and intergroup dialogue based on critical study of history and social values. The case of CRE portrays an ideological educational institution, working towards personal and social goals heavily challenged by deeply-rooted socio-political factors which dominate the surrounding reality. The thesis examines two major questions: 1. What are the nature and purposes ofCHE? 2. What is the impact ofCRE on participants, based mainly on their reflections? The study broadly illuminates CRE as a distinctive educational institution which integrates in its work three domains. These are historical education, focusing on the Holocaust; moral education, focusing on democratic and humanistic values; and peace-education, focusing on narrative-based dialogue. These are set in the context of the seemingly intractable historical, socio-political Jewish-Arab conflict.
