Our 2007 Spring Camp has seen the biggest show of new faces yet, including Palestinian youth, Israeli students, families from both sides of the border, and guests from the US and Europe. We celebrated three consecutive holidays: Passover, Prophet Muhammad's birthday and Easter with members of different faiths, and enjoyed dances of universal peace and two theater shows with audience participation. Passers by, who hesitantly stepped into the All Nations Café, have been deeply touched by the intimate sharing and expressed their deep feeling of transformation from indifference and despair to optimism and hope.
Now, that the spring is bursting out with flowers of all colors and hues from every stone terrace around us, and the Ein-Haniya spring is gushing with clear mountain water and filling the pool and the canal, we are ready to have our next Middle East Families Camp on the last week of March. Starting on Sunday the 25th and running until the first of April, this spring camp will give a chance for many new people to visit our cafe and experience our way of sharing, working, cooking, eating, creating and celebrating together.You are all welcome to be a part of it!
