.אנחנו הילדים של קידס4פיס, אנחנו פותחים את הלילה הזה עם תקווה ומקווים להקדיש נרות אלה לשלום

نحن أطفال سلام، نفتح الليل مع الأمل ونأمل أن تكرس هذه الشموع من أجل السلام

 We are the kids of Kids4Peace. We are opening this night with hope. We dedicate these candles to peace.

Kids4Peace joined with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities from Jerusalem to celebrate Hannukah, the Jewish festival of light, and shed some light on our shared difficult times. We were invited by Tag Meir and Kehilat Tzion to open the night “with hope.” Together we spoke of hope, light, peace, and the power of coming together to make change.

Four youth from Kids4Peace Jerusalem, Yazan (age 14, Muslim), Nicole (age 14, Muslim), Emanuel (age 15, Jewish), and George (age 15, Christian), spoke about light and their personal hopes for Jerusalem.

Other guests included  Brother Alberto Parry, Sheikh Mahammed, Capricorn Gevaryahu, poets and musicians and the community youth choir of the YMCA. Thank you so much to the dozens of Kids4Peace community members who came out to support our youth, and to Tag Meir and Kehilat Tzion for inviting us to join in this important prayer for light in the darkness.

Update from Jerusalem

Hello from Kids4Peace Jerusalem!

Despite the rainy and cold weather that has been stuck over Jerusalem recently, the mood at Kids4Peace has been upbeat and positive! We’ve welcomed two new groups of  6th graders to the program who will attend summer camp in Atlanta and Boston this July.  There are a lot of exciting things happening that we can’t wait to share with you!

Last Friday the Anglican International School in Jerusalem held a community service event and fundraiser benefitting Kids4Peace. Students at the school took an active role in organizing and setting up for the morning and did an amazing job! After learning a little bit more about the founder of Kids4Peace, Dr. Henry Carse, the highlight of the event was the Master Chef competition with chefs from around the city and Kids4Peace community.  Each chef had 15 minutes to prepare a dish with help from students at the school and volunteers from the audience. We had a great day filled with delicious food, fabulous company, and Kids4Peace! We are grateful to the Anglican International School for hosting the event and look forward to continuing our collaboration with them.
