Thank you - Shukran - Todah


Thanks to your support, Kids4Peace Boston has begun its 6th year empowering a new generation of peace leaders.  

This past summer, 30 Muslim, Christian, and Jewish youth from Boston lived together in peace with their peers from Jerusalem at camps in New Hampshire, Texas, and Vermont.  

Now, your generosity has enabled these teens and others to take the strong bonds they made and the skills they developed to the wider world during Kids4Peace school-year programs in Boston, as well as in Jerusalem and the West Bank. In the face of rising violence and intolerance, these teens are working together for peace. Highlights include:

•    Palestinian, Israeli, and American teens deepening their connections after camp via Facebook and WhatsApp 
•    8th - 11th graders in Boston leading a morning of Interfaith Understanding and Service for middle school youth from 3 faith communities
•   Jews, Muslims, and Christians from Jerusalem going together on an overnight retreat for dialogue and fun
•    Boston high schoolers holding workshops about the 3 Abrahamic religions for other teens, answering difficult questions, addressing religious stereotyping, and using sacred objects to teach about each religion.

These examples of peace leadership, and many more, are made possible by your involvement with Kids4Peace Boston. Thank you - we simply could not do it without you. Together peace is possible!

 

With Gratitude,

Peggy Stevens
Kids4Peace Boston Co-Founder and Program Director
