This year, The Jerusalem Fund sponsored the DC Film Festival and the Boston Film Festival, showcasing the very best Arab and Palestinian films. We were thrilled to support The Edward Said National Conservatory Orchestra and the Danadeesh Dance group in their six-city American tour.
The Fund also sponsored “Tears of Gaza,” a heart-wrenching film about the Israeli military’s offensive on Gaza. In Texas, we sponsored the first Houston Palestine Cultural Festival, where locals enjoyed discovering the wonderful variety that Palestinian culture has to offer.
In Olympia, Washington, we helped make the “Break The Silence” mural a reality. This was part of a sister city project between Rafah, Gaza and the city of Olympia, the home of late American activist Rachel Corrie.
