Our Mission

Hands of Peace is an interfaith organization developing peacebuilding and leadership skills in Israeli, Palestinian and American teens through the power of dialogue and personal relationships.


A Hope-Inspiring Summer Has Concluded!

Our 2015 Summer Programs in San Diego and Chicago have recently concluded, and we are so grateful to all the volunteers, staff, and supporters who made them possible. Activities included intensive daily dialogue sessions, team-building experiences (including a new high ropes course adventure!), film-making workshops, mural painting projects, and visits to diverse houses of worship. At Hands of Peace, we know that it takes a group to change an individual— and an individual to change the world. The group dialogue process and its limitless capacity to inspire change is the cornerstone of our ever-more-needed work. 

As always, Hands of Peace will empower our 500+ graduates with intensive, year-round follow-up programs. These include four annual overnight seminars in Israel and Palestine, as well as ongoing adult education activities and alumni retreats in the United States. We hope we can count on your continued support as we demonstrate the power of understanding and connection to overcome fear and prejudice.
