Prior to the Second Intifada, regular economic cooperation, cross-border employment opportunities, and a network of social relations existed between Palestinians and Israelis


Musa, a Palestinian sheephearder, was able to improve the health of his sheep and the quality of milk they produce after working with his partner, Amin, an Israeli farmer. Amin brings hay from Israel to Musa’s farm in Palestine—hay that is superior to what Musa typically has access to, and together they exchange farming techniques and best practices.

Prior to the Second Intifada, regular economic cooperation, cross-border employment opportunities, and a network of social relations existed between Palestinians and Israelis. When the construction of the separation barrier began in 2000, mobility along with social and economic interactions became severely limited, resulting in an entire generation of Palestinians and Israelis who have never known people from the “other side.” Musa and Amin started their partnership as a part of NEF’s efforts to build lasting relationships of trust and collaboration between Israelis and Palestinians through cross-border economic collaboration.

To help more people like Musa and Amin
