The children, whose neighborhoods were recently the scene of intercommunal tension and violence, each received a toy from Spin Master’s “Paw Patrol” range, one of the world’s most popular toy brands.

Odette Levy, the mother of one of Spin Master’s founders, was on hand alongside Efrat Duvdevani, director general of the Peres Center, to hand out the toys at two local kindergartens.

The Toy Movement resolved to do something positive and constructive for the children of Jaffa and their parents, who in recent weeks have seen their neighborhoods at the center of acute tension and violence between Arab and Jewish residents. In fact, it aims to expand this collaboration, turning the distribution into an annual event.
