Willing to Do Hard Things

A holiday message from Amirit Rosen, Jewish Advisor


Wishing you all Eid Eladha Mubarak and A Gmar Hatima Tova.

How amazing it is that we are remembering together, through our holy days, Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son. Although there are different traditions to the story, we spoke at camp about both traditions focusing on Abraham’s willingness to do hard things because of a Divine calling.

At Kids4Peace, we are willing to do hard things because of a Divine calling to create change and bring peace.

I believe that God of life doesn’t want us to sacrifice ourselves or our children. But listening to a divine call, to the call of peace, is hard, especially when we hear the news and when people around us don’t agree with what we are doing or don’t believe peace is possible.

However, at K4P we have each other, we have our religions and traditions of Abraham and The Divine spirit and calling to support us.

Happy holidays, and may we be inscribed in the book of life,

Fr. Josh Thomas


Executive Director (USA) of Kids4Peace International. Presbyter, The Episcopal Church.
