This wall was installed in Al-Khader, Palestine, near Bethlehem, on July 17, 2001.
We found a wonderful location for the wall, in a new building funded by
Italians, a community center for Al Khader where it will be seen by the whole community, children and adults.
The Palestinian community in Al-Khader plans to paint tiles in Arabic that will form the title panel of
the wall. Thank you tiles in Arabic will be painted for George Rishmawi, Hasam Jobranus, the tilesetter, leader of the boys and girls club and the community.
A grant of $5,000 from the Anderson Family Foundation
almost fully supported the project, with the balances paid out of pocket as contributions by Tom Esposito and Carolyna Marks.
I want to thank everyone who was on our trip to Palestine to build the Al-Khader section
of the World Wall for Peace - especially Scott Kennedy and FOR, George Rishmawi, Hasam Jobranus and my fantastic WWFP team, Tom Esposito, Marion Crew and Max Lafser.
