Fifty years since the 1967 War, Jerusalem remains a tense and divided city, where another generation of youth is growing up in the shadow of failed negotiations and continued violence.
But beyond the headlines about racism and incitement, there’s another Jerusalem coming to life among the city’s teens.
Join us to learn about a fast-growing movement for peace that is connecting hundreds of Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth and their parents from all across the city, creating a community in East and West Jerusalem working together towards change.
Meet the inspiring educators of Kids4Peace and learn about their groundbreaking work to build trust, empower leaders, and inspire action. They will share their personal stories of transformation, successes & challenges of this work, and where they find hope.
7:00 pm: Light dinner & interactive activities celebrating Jerusalem, including: Interactive Jerusalem map activity, “Dabkeh” dancing and Interfaith text study “the significance of Jerusalem in the three Abrahamic faiths.”
8:00 pm: Panel with Q&A “Youth and the future of Jerusalem.”
