Youth Encounters at the School for Peace

Closing a successful year

Thank you! Thanks to you and other generous donors like you, the School for Peace has been able to organize five youth encounters this year. That means about 300 young Jews and Palestinians from all over Israel have been able to meet the "other" for the first time and to have meaningful dialogue. All have left with a changed vision of relations between Palestinians and Jews, many will continue to interact in the coming years. They are all building the foundations for a peaceful future between the two communities.

The School for Peace is now preparing for next school year, and with your support, is hoping to set up even more encounters starting this fall.
