Hands of Peace
Closing Ceremony

We reconnected and were reinvigorated.

For the first time in two years, our Hands of Peace community gathered in Chicago and San Diego to celebrate the end of a Summer Program. And for the first time ever, 233 households logged in to see Sunday's Closing Ceremony via the live stream from all over the world -
Israel, Palestine, Italy, Egypt and the U.S.

Thank you for listening to and caring about our American, Israeli and Palestinian Summer Program Launchpad participants and the many alumni who have come before them. It was inspiring to witness  our teenage participants flourish and grow as many of them prepare to meet next year for the
Summer Program, July 6-22, 2022.
 
Your gifts impact nearly 700 American, Israeli and Palestinian alumni who are compassionate agents of change in their communities. It all started because one person was willing to engage deeply with someone they might never have met.
 
We are especially grateful to the following supporters who gave so generously during this  year's Benefit and Closing Ceremony.
