Come hear Israeli, Palestinian and American youth share their experiences at the culmination of the three-week Hands of Peace Summer Program. Listen to their stories of hope for the future and how the program has transformed their perspectives on “the other.”

If you are looking for inspirational examples of how young people are empowered as leaders of change, bring your family and friends to the Farewell Celebration. Presentations by this year’s participants and short films they have produced will be followed by an hors d’oeuvres and dessert reception with ample opportunity to meet the participants.
