BENEFITING: HAND IN HAND

Judy Lansky

THE STORY:

Hi Everyone,

 In honor of my 25th birthday on June 21st, I believe that even better than presents and Facebook love would be if all my friends and family donated to a non-profit organization that I believe is doing amazing and necessary work in Israel. Hand in Hand, the Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel, "brings together thousands of Jews and Arabs in five schools and communities throughout Israel. In Jerusalem. In the Galilee. In Wadi Ara. In Jaffa. In Haifa. [They] are proving on a daily basis the viability of inclusion and equality for citizens of Israel."

I first learned about Hand in Hand this winter when the CEO came to visit Ann Arbor, MI and I was fortunate enough to hear him speak. These schools bring together Israeli Jews, Arab Muslims, and Arab Christians to learn together from kindergarten until 12th grade. I believe that the best way for Israel to have peace in the future is through educating the youth to love and understand each other. These schools do just that and demonstrate that when you grow up and truly know someone different than yourself it is harder to see them as the enemy. This is not to say that the communities do not struggle and disagree on issues, rather, that they are willing to have peaceful dialogue and recognize that friendship and community can trump the hate and violence.

I encourage everyone to check out more about Hand in Hand at their website and with this video. If you have any questions, or would like to hear more about this cause, I would be happy to tell you more about it in my own words.

I personally want to donate $25 for my 25th birthday and an additional 25 cents for every individual who donates to this cause! Please help me do something meaningful as I reach a quarter of a century years old! Thank you for all the love and for being a part of my life in the past 25 years.

Lots of Love,

Judy

Note: The organization says Project Harmony which is a part of Hand in Hand but crowdrise assured me that Hand in Hand would be able to use the money however they wished.
