Farewell Celebrations
Sunday, July 24, 2022

The Chicago and San Diego communities gathered together to celebrate American, Israeli and Palestinian Hands who have embarked on the Hands of Peace journey with the 2022 Summer Program. For 19 days, these courageous youth engaged in dialogue to build bridges of understanding, develop leadership and peacebuilding skills, and prepare to become agents of change in their communities.

Thank you to Farewell Volunteer Leaders in Chicago!
