V. Upcoming Events

"PROMISES" ON PBS:

PBS will be broadcasting the film "Promises". "Promises" features seven children who offer a compelling human portrait of the Israeli & Palestinian conflict. The film draws viewers into the hearts and minds of Jerusalemís children by giving voice to those captured by the region's hatreds as well as those able to transcend them.
