The Swiss government is providing money for a Jewish-Arab school in Jerusalem. Swiss officials on Wednesday announced a $1.8 million gift to help the Bilingual School build a permanent facility. The donation — on top of $3.2 million raised in England and Germany — brings fund-raisers closer to the $9 million target. The Swiss gift stipulates that each class must have a Jewish and an Arab teacher.
