Teaching Hockey To Arab And Jewish Children

from Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette,

Former Gazette sports columnist Michael Farber, a Hockey Hall of Fame writer with Sports Illustrated, is the host of a 30-minute TSN documentary that will be premiering on Tuesday, June 25 at 9 p.m. (last night) titled Neutral Zone: The Story of Hockey in Northern Israel.

The documentary examines the Canada-Israel Hockey School, which opened three years ago in Metula, on the northern tip of Israel, and is largely financed by Canadian media magante Sidney Greenberg. The documentary looks at whether teaching hockey to Arab and Jewish children together can help promote tolerance off the ice.

“The main goal is to integrate Jewish and Arab kids together playing hockey so that they can understand each other and make a difference for the future,” Mike Mazeika, head coach of the Canada-Israel Hockey School, tells Farber in the documentary.
