Eleven years ago, Ibrahim, a 14-year-old Palestinian Arab from Judea, came to pre-1967 Israel for the first time.

Today, Ibrahim is Avraham, a yeshiva student at a haredi yeshiva in Bnei Brak.

When he first crossed the pre-1967 Green Line, Avraham was an illegal worker residing in the coastal city of Netanya.

After moving to Israel, Avraham – then still Ibrahim – became acquainted with Jewish law, Jewish tradition, and the haredi community through a friend an employer who provided him with a place to stay, and eventually introduced Ibrahim to his family.
