Event Description

APPLY TODAY TO ATTEND THE HAND IN HAND ~ YAD B'YED CONFERENCE!

Hand in Hand ~ Yad b’Yed is a national conference providing a platform for dialogue, education, networking, and social action amongst university students interested in a pluralistic approach to interfaith relations and peace in the Middle East.

Organized and led by University of Miami students involved with the student group Jews and Muslims (JAM), Hand in Hand presents the tools required for university students to pursue change by means of non-violence and respect for all. Five arenas will be investigated: Poverty, Health, Environmental, Education, Conflict Resolution/Human Rights.

Mission Statement: Hand in Hand will provide university students with the connections and tools needed to build trust amongst religious and ethnic communities in order to establish social change by serving the central needs of the peoples involved in the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.

Stated Hand in Hand Conference Points of Interest:

1. Develop understanding, respect, and compassion among Christians, Jews, and Muslims.

2. Search for common ground amongst university students, with a focus on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

3. Establish a forum to produce constructive, non-violent objectives that possess the potential to affect communities, religious establishments, businesses, and organizations.

4. Create a sustainable network to facilitate in communication, exchange, and coexistence.

5. Strengthen the voices of a new generation combating ethnic stereotypes, Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and unethical policies in the Middle East.

Hand in Hand does not aim to choose a political side, but rather educate students of the many voices that exist within Christian, Jewish, and Muslim communities and provide the tools to utilize these voices for change in a globalized world. Through creativity and interactive experiences at the conference, university students will foster connections with the leading Israelis and Palestinians who promote change through nonviolence, and thus discover how to also instill those values and ethics within the American discourse about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This symbiotic relationship is crucial and demands awareness.
