The Crucial Importance of Educating Palestine
Growing up in a private educational system, Palestine was rarely discussed, leading to gaps in my understanding of what was happening. As an adult, I've sought to explore this overlooked history, uncovering a vibrant past filled with cultural richness.

Over time, I've gained insights into the enduring traditions and connections tied to elements like olive trees, reminiscent of the significance of date palms in my Gulf heritage.

Exploring the histories of Palestinian cities revealed diverse narratives of trade, innovation, and cultural exchange. From the citrus groves of Yaffa to the ancient churches of Jerusalem, each corner holds a unique story waiting to be shared.

Their heritage is evident as they immerse themselves in the language, showcasing exceptional skills as poets and storytellers. I learned this in fragments over the years, as there was no singular source to reach out to in order to learn more.

I look forward to the amazing Mayssoun Azzam sharing the rich cultural heritage of Palestine with the world through this Playbook Masterclass.
