We walk from Moses Montefiore Temple on Robinhood Lane to the Islamic Center of Bloomington- Normal on Gill Stree as a symbolic move to demonstrate the work the Friends Forever does to foster a healthy and strong relationship between their Arab and Jewish students, as well as a move to symbolize how everyone, regardless of faith and background, shares common ground.

Friends Forever is a national organization that brings students from conflict prone areas of the world together in both their home country and the United States to foster empathy, collaboration and understanding across cultures. The Bloomington-Normal chapter has been working with high school age students from Israel for the past 4 years.
