Mais, Nazareth, Israel
Bridging the divide between Israel's Jewish and Arab communities, two young girls—17-year-old Muslim flutist Mais (left) and 18-year-old Jewish cellist Hagit—join forces to perform classical music with the local Polyphony Orchestra. "Something as simple as music was able to bring these girls together," Strauss says. "Their story shows that a spiritual experience doesn't have to happen in a church or a temple."
