Our Mission

Hands of Peace is an interfaith organization developing peacebuilding and leadership skills in Israeli, Palestinian and American teens through the power of dialogue and personal relationships.


Participants and Alumni in Action!

Having concluded the 2014 Summer Programs in Chicago and San Diego, we are continually awed and inspired by the work of our participants and alumni. Please be sure to check out the beautiful video shorts created by this summer's Israeli, Palestinian, and American teens.

HOP is also thrilled to showcase a new nine-minute film about our Summer Program (special thanks to videographer James Brown for donating his services!) and a stunning “Alumni Magazine” edited and produced by one of our own—2011 HOP participant Casey Chiapetta! The Alumni Magazine (pictured on the right) features stories from two alumni from each of the past 10 Summer Programs and shows how HOP has impacted their lives.

For more news from HOP—including highlights from our U.S. and Middle East Alumni Clubs—please check out our Spring Newsletter and stay tuned for our Fall Newsletter. Thank you, as always, for your support of our young peace-builders!
