Join us for a profoundly moving service as a group of teens, including HCRJ Religious School student Jake Cosgrove, from Israel and the Palestinian territories grace us with their stories after having spent the previous week at a camp called “Jerusalem Peacebuilders”.
The purpose of this camp, which takes place outside of Houston, is to promote transformational encounters through a residential camp for Israeli, Palestinian and American teenagers. Dialogue is facilitated by United States diplomats, former Israeli and Palestinian combatants, artists, and religious leaders from each faith. These brave souls have committed themselves to learning from each other despite the ongoing context of hatred and violence that surround them every day. Learn about this groundbreaking camp and how it has transformed these peace-minded teens as our guests will share their experiences.
