In September, 2005, 140 Jews, Muslims and Christians of all ages from North America and the Middle East live together in a resident camp in California -- Oseh Shalom ~ Sanea al-Salam Palestinian-Jewish Family Peacemakers Camp. They meet cautiously, learn to communicate, and share life together in new ways.
With community and staff support, they eat, exchange life stories and values, confront difficult issues, study, sing, dance, recreate in nature, and experience ceremony together. Most participants change and grow closer.
The film paints a picture of “enemies” building relatiionships with a new quality of listening, sharing life, grateful for nature and each other.
Young and old campers transcend stereotypes to transform confrontation into collaboration and demonstrate what peaceful coexistence can and will look like.
This DVD is the perfect tool to inspire others to break the ice, transcend stereotypes, and even create a camp-like program in one’s one community.
