You may remember that Hands of Peace received a district grant the last two years supported by several local clubs including ours. Hands of Peace has just begun it's 15th year of work with Israeli and Palestinian teens with 96 participants here and in Chicago. In a three week program this July, the participants will  undergo daily dialogue programs with facilitators, leadership and critical thinking training and attend conflict resolution seminars with experts in the field. If you would like to see your Rotary dollars at work and know more about Hands of Peace, the perfect opportunity is their Farewell Celebration on Sunday, July 30. You will get a chance to meet the founder and leaders of the organization and hear from the participants and see videos that they have produced. You will really enjoy this experience -  it is magic to see Israelis and Palestinians who have bonded in a shared dream to resolve their conflict at home.
