H EERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL 4. 2003 PAGE 3 For the first time in Central- Florida, Jewish and Arab youth, all members of the Florida Friends of Seeds of Peace have joined together to organize The Pictures of Hope Celebration for Seeds of Peace. It will be held on Sunday, April 13, 3 - 5 pm at Lyman High School auditorium, located at 865 South County Rd. 427, in Longwood. The event will feature tradi- tional Israeli and Arab danc- ing, a newly formed local Middle Eastern World Music Band, A Traditional Indian Dance troupe, The Orlando Klezmorim Band, a Persian musical and vocal piece, a Middle Eastern Fashion Show and an Israeli/Jewish/Arab Art Exhibit. The high school and col- lege-age students organizing the event and performing the Middle Eastern dances are part of the Florida Friends Chapter of Seeds of Peace, a non-profit, non-political organization dedicated to helping teenag- ers from regions in conflict, including Arab and Israeli youngsters from the Middle East~ end the cycle of violence. The proceeds from this year's Pictures of Hope Cel- ebration will go towards schol- arships for teens from the Middle East and other regions of conflict to attend the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Maine. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Since 1993, Seeds of Peace has graduated more than 2,000 teenagers representing 22 na- tions from its internationally recognized conflict-resolution program. The Seeds of Peace program brings hundreds of youth identified by their gov- ernments as among the best and brightest to live together at three consecutive month- long summer programs. Through the summer and fol- low-up programs, participants develop empathy, respect, communication/negotiation skills, confidence, and hope - the building blocks for peace- ful coexistence. Thousands of applications were sent in by teens in areas of conflict around the world to attend the Seeds of Peace See "Seeds" on page 19 High school and college.age students rehearse Middle Eastern dances for Pictures of Hope Celebration. bay camp for 'special' needs The Andrew Hansen Mandell JCC Summer Day Camp is now accepting regis- tration for Camp Masada, a program designed for children With special needs.
