Invitation to: Kids4Peace #ForwardTogether Walk and Youth Panel
This Thursday, youth of Jerusalem are making change. Over the past summer Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth, participants of Kids4Peace Jerusalem, traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with 14 Congressional offices to show their support for HR 1489, a bill that would create an International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace. The bill, co-sponsored by Reps. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.), will expand grassroots people-to-people efforts to build coexistence.
Now they are back and are eager to share their experiences from the White House and the Capitol.
This Friday, 100 Jerusalem youth, Muslim Christian and Jewish, Palestinian and Israeli, will walk 360 degrees around the Old City of Jerusalem, co-led by professional Israeli and Palestinian guides, leading us in the path to a more peaceful Jerusalem and showing us that we are stronger together.

Founded in Jerusalem in 2002, Kids4Peace is a global movement of Jewish, Christian & Muslim youth, dedicated to ending conflict and inspiring hope in divided societies around the world.
Through a network of local chapters, Kids4Peace operates five international summer camps and a six-year, year-round program for hundreds of Palestinian, Israeli and North American youth.
We are changing the conversation — asking new questions and finding new answers to the struggle for peace, ones that are based in real relationships of trust and understanding.
Our mission is to build interfaith communities that embody a culture of peace and empower a movement for change.
Tiyul-Rihla (“Trip” in Hebrew and Arabic) is a bi-national organization which develops educational opportunities focusing on Palestinian and Israeli historical narratives, cultures, and identities. Tiyul-Rihleh’s multi-day trips bring mixed groups of Palestinians and Israelis on tours which provide a unique opportunity for participants to learn about each other from each other by exploring the land and the history they share.
