Children are wide open to receive the world with minds and hearts yet to be filled.  Although the children of the Middle East are thousands of miles away, we can nurture and support them, fostering their growth, into the people they were meant to be.

Imagine what this could bring to the region…

reGeneration supports an educational system that is ethical, compassionate, artistic, and inspirational for both Israelis and Palestinians.  Jewish and Arab children, separately or together, are immersed in peaceful, intellectual and creative learning environments.

In Europe and the United States such schools have afforded children a sense of harmony, creativity, and fairness that leads them into lifelong action in the service of what is good and just. reGeneration and the Waldorf educational approach it supports, are like olive trees, rooted in their communities, beginning to stand strong and wide in a Middle East where children can flourish.

While we pray that the negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians are fruitful, reGeneration continues working on what can be done today to benefit Jewish, Muslim, and Christian childrem growing up under the chronic stress of conflict in the Middle East.  
Join us to learn about the seeds being planted now!

Violence of any kind, early in life – either experienced or observed – can have long-lasting and detrimental impacts on children.  Research has shown that the early years in a child’s life—while the human brain is forming—represent a critically important window of opportunity to develop a child’s full potential and shape key academic, social, and cognitive skills that determine a child’s success in school and in life.  A nurturing environment in the early years can modify an individual’s brain development and the ability to deal with stressful conditions later in life.  Join us March 16 for an afternoon to learn how the well-being of young Jewish, Muslim and Christian children growing up in the Middle East can benefit from the Waldorf approach to early childhood education.  

This event is for adults only.
