Review for Jerusalem Peacebuilders, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This amazing organization's mission is to bring peace to present and future generations in one of the most troubled areas of the world. Every year, Jewish, Muslim and Christian youth from Israel come to camps in the U.S. to learn about one another's religions, to practice inclusion and learn peaceful ways to engage people who might worship differently from them. They also work in the surrounding communities to help the homeless and disadvantaged during their stay at camp. Jerusalem Peacebuilders also takes mission trips to Israel to try to make inroads in school curricula there, as well as to fund other projects which will positively impact people of all faiths there. I have been able to volunteer in the Houston area for the youth that come to camp here. They are wonderful kids who become excited about learning about one another and interested in taking this knowledge back home with them to practice there.
