We have been teaching tolerance in Israel since 1992 -- a clear voice of hope and sanity in a region that is better known for tension and conflict. We need to raise $25K immediately (with $20K already raised) or this voice will be silenced forever.
For example, at a time when building lasting bridges between Jews and Arabs is an ever more critical need, two unique programs we have built will disappear off the face of the earth: the Galilee Circus for Jewish and Arab youth, and Young Leaders for Jewish and Arab teens -- the future leadership of the Galilee -- to explore and share their values and then meet up with Jewish youth from abroad.
If you care about the quality of Israel's future, please help us continue our informal education work to promote Jewish-Arab cooperation, Jewish pluralism, and Israel-Diaspora relations. This emergency call for funds is to cover a deficit created by loss of revenues in the second half of 2014 because so many groups cancelled their trips to Israel due to the conflict in Gaza in July.
