THE STORY:

Elena Weissmann wrote -

Hey everyone! This summer, U.Va. is sponsoring me to work at Project Harmony, a summer camp for Jewish and Arab children from Jerusalem. Project Harmony aims to create a safe social space for Arab and Jewish children from Jerusalem to relate to one another in the most basic way--not as citizens of a politically tense state or members of a religious group, but as peers. In a system where divisions are pervasive, entrenched, and often self-imposed, change is necessarily long term. Project Harmony seeks to plant the seed of this long-term process: one that begins with children who, despite being born into a deeply divided society, are given the chance to imagine their community as one rooted in shared experience, intellectual freedom, and social awareness. This is my vision of peace. (http://www.projectharmonyisrael.com/the-project.html)
