During these difficult days of uncertainty, division and violence, the Peace Preschool at the Jerusalem International YMCA continues to bring together 140 children – Christians, Jews and Muslims, religious and secular, from home and abroad - in an atmosphere of peaceful coexistence.
Our preschool is truly one of a kind, as children of all three faiths play and learn together in a loving and caring environment. Its goals are to facilitate coexistence between Arabs and Jews on a daily and ongoing basis, as a normal part of life for the children and parents. It also aims to enable the development of tolerance and understanding, while preserving the distinct characteristics of each child and his/ her religious and cultural identity. Our children are the hope for the future, and we hope and pray for Peace, Salaam, and Shalom.

Peace Preschool in space!

Heart to heart, Christian, Muslim and Jewish children are reaching for the stars!



As a courtesy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is allowing certain items for use as mementos to be taken aboard shuttle mission STS-129. Our preschool has been given the opportunity to send a banner into space! It's in the shape of a spacecraft, it would involve the children and connect with Archie Harte (Heart to Heart).

Peace in Jerusalem

Dear Friends and Parents of the Jerusalem International YMCA Peace Preschool,



Our website continues to be updated and added to. Last night we had a Preschool Cafe party and today we had a Shavuot party. Pictures of both are up on the site! As before, we have to make room on our main menu for the new pages but all the old pages and pictures can be found as items on the Photos page.



We hope you like the new photos! Don't forget to pass our web address on to all your friends… Continue

How YOU can help! (Posting again for friends that were looking for this! ) :)

Dear Friends of the Jerusalem International YMCA Peace Preschool,



Some of you had asked about donating. PLEASE do not feel obligated.



Each year the Peace Preschool continues to advance its mission of coexistence. Sadly, many parents cannot afford the $6750 yearly tuition fee and have to apply for scholarships. A well known secret is that we accept ALL children that want to be in our Preschool, even if they lack the funds to do so. This is where YOU can make a difference-… Continue

Our preschool has been given the opportunity to send a banner into space! It's in the shape of a spacecraft, it would involve the children and connect with Archie Harte (Heart to Heart). Archie Harte had a vision of the YMCA to be a place when persons of different faiths walk through the doors, that it be a place where they can coexist peacefully and exchange their ideas and appreciate one another no matter what their background. When an astronaut looks back to the earth from space they say that they see this beautiful earth that looks so peaceful and you do not see the borders or the strife or conflict, just like the goals the YMCA, particularly the Jerusalem YMCA strives toward.

The process of making our banner from beginning to end is on my facebook homepage!

Hey!
Did you ever bring your pugs to your preschool?
I was thinking that maybe you could start a pug meetup group that could bring together Palestinian and Israeli pug owners together, and let their pugs play together.
My older sister used to be apart of a pug meetup group, and she used to bring her pug to play with other pugs.

Nice of you to add me, and glad to have you as a friend. Please be patient, open minded, and try to keep your sanity in this community, as we go some times little crazy with our hopes and ideas.

Hi! :)
My sister's pugs name is Mango.
She is really cute. I miss her, since when I stayed at my sister's apartment, the pug slept with me! :)
So you collect frogs? Real live ones?
Please do look out for some amazing chopsticks if you see any! :)
And I think that that's so cool that you work at the YMCA International Pre School. I really hope that this preschool will bring out many great friendships and peacseekers! :)
