Seeds of Peace: A Benefit Towards a Most Critical Intervention

I liked summer camp. A lot. But I didn’t really see how it could solve the Middle East conflict just because it was a positive experience in my own life. I have, in darker moments, even suspected that some of their benefactors are perhaps more concerned with (publicly) demonstrating their own universalism and humanitarian compassion rather than effecting change.
Until now.
I found out that there is more to Seeds of Peace than just the summer camp component.
These entertainers, many of whom are Jews, are focusing on raising funds not just for the summer camp, but also for educational programs to alleviate the devastating crisis of hatred in…Maine.
For Seeds of Peace runs “a domestic program called ‘Maine Seeds’ to address ethnic and racial tensions between the diverse communities that have settled in the camp’s home state of Maine.”
In these final days of repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, let us come together as a community and pledge support to help educate the poor, ravaged peoples of Maine to transcend the millenniums of mistrust and prejudice that so frequently blinds them from seeing the human face of their enemy, and offer an alternative to their tribal warfare and religious intolerance, and finally end the cycle of violence.
Please give generously.
