NEW REGIONAL CO-DIRECTOR JOINS JPB TEAM: Sarah Aweidah comes with experience, energy, and aptitude

After completing her role as a Lead Educator this summer, Sarah Aweidah joined the JPB team as our Palestinian, Jerusalem Regional Co-Director.  Born in East Jerusalem, Sarah comes with a strong background in conflict transformation and dialogue facilitation. Prior to JPB, Sarah was a participant in Seeds of Peace and a dialogue facilitator with Hands of Peace. She studied electrical engineering at Tel Aviv University, which led her into teaching students in math, physics, and Hebrew. In her new role, Sarah joins her Israeli counterpart, Yardena Prawer, in growing JPB's high school programs in Jerusalem and beyond. Upon her appointment, Sarah shared these words:

"I started working with JPB a few months ago and already the program has changed my life. I decided to shift my career after seeing first-hand the impact of JPB's summer institutes on our young leaders. JPB helped me realize that we build a better future, for all of us, together. I am very excited to play an essential role in empowering and shaping future peace leaders with JPB."
