PEACE with Penny SEASON 3: Penny S. Tee Interviews Rev. Canon Nicholas T. Porter, Executive Director of Jerusalem Peacebuilders April 12, 2022
On April 12th we spoke with Rev. Canon Nicholas T. Porter, Executive Director of Jerusalem Peacebuilders. Their vision is a Jerusalem and a world where Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Druze live together as sisters and brothers in dignity, equality, and peace.
Jerusalem Peacebuilders or (JPB) is an interfaith, non-profit organization with a mission to create a better future for humanity across religions, cultures, and nationalities. Integral to that mission is the belief that the future of Jerusalem is the future of the world. To that end, JPB promotes transformational, person-to-person encounters among the peoples of Jerusalem, Israel, Palestine, and the United States.
They have many enlightening programs bringing together Israeli, Palestinian and American teens and young adults together in the United States, Israel and in the Palestinian Territories, in summer camps, leadership programs, 4-year programs of conflict resolution in high schools in Israel, and adult programs of travel, educator training, and a new program for empowering women. They are creating Peacebuilders by providing them necessary skills to change the paradigm in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and create a better world.
We hope you will listen to our interview as we discuss how Jerusalem Peacebuilders helps create a new generation of Peace activists, listening, learning and working together for a better future.
It’s our intention for PEACE with Penny to be a source of hope, as people see that Israelis and Palestinians do want Peace and bless all of the intelligent, creative and devoted Peace activists who work hard to improve the lives of their communities.
We show you that many Israelis and Palestinians, we believe, the majority, do want Peace with one another. Unfortunately, it’s the extremists that make the news. If you’d like to learn more about PEACE with Penny, please reach out to us at Penny@PennySTee.com
With the increased violence this week in Israel, and as the Holy holidays of Ramadan, Easter and Passover are upon us, we hope that the situation will calm down. And as the pictures of the horrors appear on our tv screens at home, of the barbarous violence in Ukraine, we pray that everyone will some day live in Peace, שלום and سلام.
