PEACE with Penny: Penny S. Tee interviews Bruce Shaffer, a photographer who uses photography workshops to build connections between Israelis and Palestinians. In his youth photography classes, Bruce creatively uses cameras as a point of connection between his Hebrew and Arabic speaking students in Israel and in the West Bank who live in separate, conflicting communities. He instructs them to maximize what they have in common—their eyes and their hearts. Students work on assignments that require rediscovering their environment, seeing people in it from new angles, re-envisioning their future, and then sharing their findings with each other. These are footsteps in a Peaceful direction for the next generation. Amen.
May You Live in Peace, שלום and سلام,
Penny S. Tee
