ONLINE PROGRAM BRIDGES GAP: Partnership connects US and Mideast youth
Coinciding with the launch of our summer institutes for youth and adults in the Holy Lands last August, JPB led an online Foundations Institute with our longtime partners Kids4Peace Boston (K4PB). The joint program successfully brought together eight American, Israeli, and Palestinian youth and adults for a powerful week of learning peacebuilding skills and dialogue. We were also joined by three of our amazing Jewish, Christian, and Muslim alumni for a special panel discussion about the importance of interfaith connections and transforming conflicts. When the pandemic prevented Americans from meeting with their Middle East peers, the Foundations Institute bridged the gap and advanced understanding!
