Perhaps Peace Can Come from Music
One of the initiatives I was introduced to while on my trip to Israel was an organization called Koolulam. Over the past couple of years, they have put on performances in which three to five thousand people at a time participate. They bring together Jews, Christians and Muslims to sing a song. They gather for an hour or two before the performance to learn the song in Hebrew, Arabic and English and then sing it together. It is incredibly powerful, and just watching their performance will bring a tear to your eye. Below is a video of the most recent performance this summer at David’s Citadel in Jerusalem. They sing One Love by Mattisyahu. Click here to enjoy.
