Project Summaries

Galilee Dreamers Program


I want to start with my friends, and try to get them to see what I see now. And who knows, maybe it will lead to a bigger group of people seeing coexistence as important a thing as I do.

After this journey, I support coexistence to a much greater extent, and understand its importance in the complex reality that exists.

[The experience] definitely made me a better person.

[The experience] strengthened my commitment to coexistence.

It deepened my understanding that we and the next generation must work harder to make a change. I am certainly motivated to contribute as much as I can.
