Through Others’ Eyes
August 4, 2011
A delegation of brave young Jewish Israeli and Arab Israeli youngsters finished their three-week stay at Camp Shomira in Liberty, NY. Their stay under the sponsorship of Givat Haviva and supported by the Puffin Foundation ended with a photo exhibition titled Through Others’ Eyes at the Puffin Cultural Forum.
The exhibition was a look into each others’ homes in Israel where the youngsters learned how similar their family lives were. These brave young teenagers crossed borders and shared each others’ diverse but not so different values and learned to listen and respect each other.
The program at Camp Shomira, where they discussed conflict resolution and lived together, was a wonderful awakening for them. They will be using Facebook to help keep in touch once back in Israel and help share their experiences with others.
Exhibit runs August 3-18.
Gallery Hours: 12-4pm Tuesday-Thursday.
