International Ceremony for Peace

The Eastern Mediterranean International School of HaKfar Hayarok held an international ceremony for peace on May 8.

Students from Yemen, China, the Ukraine, Israel, and Palestine shared their experiences with conflict. In between, students and faculty sang songs and recited poems about peace.

The ceremony ended with a moment of silence for all those lost in every conflict. Ameen Haj Yahia of East Jerusalem wrote, “We can build, we can destroy. We can choose to love, and we can choose to hate. The right choice is in our hands.”
