Kids4Peace Jerusalem Celebrates is 10 Year

​Haaretz - 25 January 2013

​More than 300 activists and kids involved in the Jerusalem Kids4Peace nonprofit met last Thursday night to mark 10 years of bringing together Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth from Israeli and Palestinian homes. "We were shocked by how many people came to this event," co-director Rebecca Sullum told Haaretz yesterday. "This was really empowering, that all these people want to continue supporting the work we are doing," the native of Allentown, Pennsylvania said.

Peace, he said, "is not a product, it is a practice.” 

Should Women be Allowed in Direct Combat?





The Morning Call - 25 January 2013

On Thursday, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that the military would lift its policy against women in combat roles. The change has many supporters, including President Barack Obama, members of Congress and female soldiers, but plenty of critics, who say women cannot meet the fitness standards of male soldiers. Addressing the issue for The Morning Call are Rebecca Sullum, an Allentown native who moved to Israel and served in a combat unit with the Israeli Defense Force; and conservative commentator John Brinson of Breinigsville, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Rebecca Sullum now works as the Co-Director of Kids4Peace Jerusalem helping to develop a culture of peace through interfaith dialogue with Israeli and Palestinian youth.
