*The Palestinian Summer Celebration 2009*

The Palestinian Summer Celebration is an annual, non-profit initiative to
foster International-Palestinian cultural exchange, operated out of the
Siraj Center for Holy Land Studies, which is located in Beit Sahour, less
than one kilometer from Bethlehem, in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

My name is Justin Theriault and I am an editor and contributor to IMEMC,
which is an English, non-profit independent Middle East media center, also
located in Beit Sahour. Being a joint Palestinian-International effort,
IMEMC combines Palestinian journalists' deep understanding of the context,
history, and the socio-political environment with International journalists'
skills in non-partisan reporting.

The Palestinian Summer Celebration is a unique annual program that gives
people from all over the world the chance to encounter the life, culture,
and politics of Palestine. Learn Arabic and study Palestinian history at
Bethlehem University, spend time with local families and volunteer with a
community organization. For anyone that has ever dreamed of visiting the
Holy Land, or getting involved in activism on the ground in the Occupied
Territories, this is the perfect opportunity.

It is my initiative to ensure that this year's Palestinian Summer
Celebration is the biggest and best yet, and in order for this to come to
fruition, I am asking for your help. One of our main targets for this
initiative are university students in the United States, and considering
that your organization has a presence at a major American University, I feel
that your organization is in a great position to help Siraj achieve its
stated objective.

Together, we can work in educating American students about the situation in
Palestine; students will have an opportunity to experience a wide arrange of
experiences, ranging from the rich culture and history of Palestine, to the
brutal military occupation that continues to destroy and dismantle
Palestine's rich history.

programs and initiatives that we are undertaking, please visit our website

I am attaching the logo for this year's Palestinian Summer Celebration in
hopes that you will post it on your student group's home page with a link to
our site.

Sincerely,

Justin Marc Theriault
