Meet a few special people. And hear their stories.

Whether Israeli or Palestinian, Christian, Jew or Arab, everyone highlighted here has a story. Not a political, nationalist, or religious story — rather, a human story.

At the end of the day, we’re all people.

On one hand, some of these people have endured (and continue to endure) the kind of suffering that won’t ever go away. On the other, it’s the kind of pain they would never wish upon anyone else, no matter what “side” they’re on. Under difficult circumstances, these people and others have made a choice to reach out to the light, and not the dark.

This humanity makes these people unique.

Their drive for co-existence is something we can all learn from. We want to follow their example because they embody the spirit that will ultimately help end this conflict. Their stories are a crucial part of the Fund’s DNA. Because quite simply, without their spirit, we are nothing.
