WELCOME BACK EVENT
 
 
Six weeks after camps ended, over 250 K4P Jerusalem community members came back together for an evening of inspiration and a start to the new year. 

On September 23rd, K4P Jerusalem Directors, Staff, and Steering Committee chairs welcomed the youth and families, shared upcoming opportunities (including a brand new parents' program), and showed a slideshow of the 7 summer camps that went on despite the increased violence this past summer.  The K4P Seattle group debuted a trilingual version of the K4P chant:  "Tired of the fighting, time to do the right thing..."
 
Thank you to everyone who made it out to this special evening.
It was a great kick-off to a year sure to be filled with many good things!

STAFF RETREAT
   

 

It felt like a family reunion, full of hugs, kisses, shrieks, and camera flashes all around. After an intense summer of violence, tension, and uncertainty in Jerusalem, the K4P Jerusalem staff came together to appreciate one another and reflect. With lingering sadness due to several Palestinian team members not having permits to attend the celebratory event in Jerusalem, the staff made the best of it.

 

Everyone spoke. Dinner started to get cold, but there was too much to say.  

 

"I wish I could change my last name to Kids4Peace...because it really feels like family." 

-Montaser, a Muslim advisor from Hebron.
