Our Interfaith Partners

We appreciate the ongoing and enthusiastic support we receive from:

Glenview Community Church 

Islamic Foundation North 

Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation

Palomar Unitarian Church

Temple Solel

Congregation Sukkat Shalom

Christ Presbyterian Church

These remarkable faith-based communities in the Chicago and San Diego area have been instrumental in helping HOP to grow and thrive, and they have each played an integral role in the interfaith part of the Hands of Peace experience for our participants.  They have contributed greatly to Hands of Peace on a wide variety of levels. We are so grateful for the many ways in which they help us, and also for their dedication to the goal of nurturing peace-builders of the future.


I’m so glad I had this opportunity to hear others and to be heard. HOP opened my eyes and definitely made me a different person. I’ve created strong friendships that will never be forgotten. When I go back to Israel I’ll spread what I have learned and help to create a change.
