March 13, 2018


We are proud to announce that Hand in Hand Co-founder Lee Gordon received the Brock International Prize in Education!


Yohai Gross, an Israeli educator who specializes in work with at-risk and special needs youth, nominated Gordon for this award and represented Gordon’s nomination to his fellow jurors. “Lee Gordon’s educational innovation is the kind of thing that restores our faith in humanity,” said Gross. “His work of breaking the barriers between Arabs and Jews in Israel through education is a model that we can all learn from and hope to emulate.”


Lee is currently the Director of the American Friends of Hand in Hand. We are so grateful for his vision and work as we continue to build together! Thank you, Lee!
