Dear Friends

For a long time I have wanted to sing with the Children from Neve Shalom Wahat al- Salam, a village between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, where Jewish and Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel are living together. In the seventies they began to build up this village. Today 65 families are living there together 50% Jewish and 50% Arabic people

Last summer I started to unfold the project and I was fortunate to get in contact with the right peoples at the right time. First I asked Ursina Glaus if she would come with me and she was happy to do so and also to support the work.  Barbara Wegmüller helped me to get in contact with Evi Guggenheim. She participated in building up this Village right from the beginning. And she helped me to get in contact with Carmella Ferber the leader of the school.

On the 13th of November we travelled to Israel. Arriving at the Village in the evening we settled into the beautiful Guesthouse of Neve Shalom. The next day we went through the arch of the Rainbow into the school. Everything was then arranged and together with the teacher Raida Aiashe Khatib I sang with the school children from the 3rd class and some children from the 6th class. Raida is an English Teacher, and has an excellent method of teaching the words of the songs. In a short time, they knew the words of the three songs by heart. We came together only 6 times to learn the songs, but the children had also the possibility to practice at home through the Videos on YouTube. It was a great joy for us to work with the children and in a short time they were singing from their whole hearts.

On the day of the recording, the school had a meeting with teachers from different schools in Israel. I gave a short presentation of my project and the children sang the peacesongs. On the homepage of Neve Shalom they wrote about our visit to the school and Yali Reichman Amit made a video of it.                                                                                        http://wasns.org/world-network-of-singing-children

 

 

 

We had an unforgettable time and it was a great pleasure for us to be in this wonderful place “Oasis of peace.”

Ruanda

During the past year Leonidas Ndayizeye was preparing a Peace event for children. (I wrote about it) Some weeks before the event should have taken place Leonidas had an accident in the street. As he fell from the motorcar someone stole his bag with the technical material for the event. He is now home from the hospital and wants to go on with his work. I wish him good luck for his important work where the children also will sing some of the peace songs.

 

Burkina Faso 

I also wrote about Petra Samaras in the last Newsletter. Since I visited her School Class last year in Liestal she still continues to sing the peacesongs with the schoolchildren. They love to sing the songs, the favorite is “Can you hear me” Now she is travelling to Burkina Faso and will present my peace project in different schools. Lucienne Plattet has translated all the words of the songs in French. That helps the French speaking children to understand the English text. It would be great if children in Burkina Faso get the opportunity to sing these songs of Peace and oneness. 

 

Hungary

Agi Hidveghy gave me an important address for the Project in Budapest last week. I hope I can write more about it next time.
