During the pre – Pilgrimage days in Jerusalem, Karen and Tom G., Alan T., and Randy M. met with the co-directors of Kids4Peace, Jerusalem, Tareq S. and Meredyth R.

Kids4Peace brings together American, Israeli, and Palestinian children for camps and other activities with the aim of overcoming ignorance and fear through many activities in which they can discover trust by telling oneanother their stories and building relationships of trust thus creating a deep love and connection.

Meredyth and Tareq told us their own fascinating stories, described Kids4Peace’s history and current activities, and discussed the opportunities and challenges ahead. Particularly for those of us who had heard about Kids4Peace from St Mark’s friend and the executive director (and St Mark’s friend), Josh T. It was definitely an inspiring morning.
