UN International Day of Families 2010

Day of Families Celebrated in Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel - On May 15, Ambassadors for Peace along with their families gathered at the beautiful Bell Gardens in Jerusalem. Among the participants were a city councilor, two ministerial advisers, and several professors and educators.

Mr. Jeremy Jordan, Secretary General of UPF Israel, read UPF’s Declaration on the Family, after which a lively discussion on the topic was conducted among the participants. The formal segment of the program was followed by picnic lunch and outdoor games for the youth.

The Bell Gardens was chosen as the location for the event since it enabled us to invite both Jews and Arabs to participate and share together as one family under God.
