Gifts for Special Occasions

I did not find the world desolate when I entered it. And as my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me.
- Talmud

A man's true wealth hereafter is the good he does in this world to his fellow man.
- Mohammed

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.  
- New Testament

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
- Margaret Mead

Hand in Hand’s mission to build a shared society in Israel is a team effort. Each individual who stands with us strengthens our resolve and inspires us as we continue to build a shared communal life between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel, one school at a time, one community at a time.

We are enormously grateful to those who are marking their special celebrations and life cycle events, such as births, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings, or anniversaries, by asking their friends to donate to Hand in Hand. And we thank those who have chosen to remember their loved ones by making a gift in their memory.

Thank you for your commitment and for helping us a make a difference.
