Help Us Empower Peacemakers

The Jerusalem Prayer Project (JPP) has been self-funded by a combination of personal assets of its producers and benefactor donations. To date, $50,000 and hundreds of hours of development, writing & editing time have been committed to create the presentation package; including promo video, original music for the soundtrack and CD “Flow”, website design, image licensing, and initial film production.
JPP officially launched December 10, 2016 with a multi-media fundraising event at the Electric Lodge Theater in Venice, CA. The night was a great success, breaking ground into the public arena of non-profit funding. As a result of JPP’s initial fundraising push, Executive Producer Stephen L. Fiske and Director Robert Corsini raised sufficient funds to travel to Israel/Palestine for ten days of field production for their documentary ‘Warriors of the Heart’. The journey documented several stories of grassroots peacemakers in the holy land, including that of -- 'Women Wage Peace', an Israeli/Palestinian women's movement developing new approaches towards resolving the ongoing conflict in the region.
Your generosity directly empowers the JPP team to continue its mission of promoting peace in the Holy Land and around the world through creative, mindful and prayerful action -- at a time when it is needed most.
We need YOUR help to bring these stories to light.
The Jerusalem Prayer Project is a special affiliate of the Unity-and-Diversity World Council (UDC), a California 501c3 non-profit organization based in Los Angeles.

Peace Portal

The Peace Portal creates a global space for this work, documenting and promoting peace-making and reconciliation through creative action.

The Peace Portal provides a platform for crafting a message in a format of choice, that is prayerful and follows basic principles of peace,nonviolence, and sustainability. The project embraces the wisdom of ancient prophets and modern-day peacemakers such as Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez, Mother Theresa, and currently, the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis.

Full-length documentary

"Warriors of the Heart" is JPP’s first feature documentary film that enters into the world of grass roots peacemaking at the center of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict -- telling stories of courageous Peacemakers, on the ground, who risk everything for the greater ‘good’ of both peoples. The filming has begun featuring: “Women Wage Peace” as the first segment; followed by the stories of Israeli settler Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger, and Palestinian political activist Ali Abu Awaad; and Professor Mohammed S. Dajani Daoudi, a moderate Palestinian who has formed the “Wasatia” movement in Palestine, teaching empathy and moderation in the midst of conflict.

Theatrical Short

JPP will feature a ‘short-subject’ film entitled Jerusalem Prayer. The film is approximately 15 minutes in length and is set to the soundtrack recording of music (compositions: Jerusalem Prayer and Peace of Prayer) by Stephen L. Fiske.

The film has no narration or voice over. It is a flowing montage of images following the melodic and rhythmic pulse of the music. Conceived and written by Stephen, it gives a storyline with principal characters, and portrays a musical and visual depiction of the beauty and color of the rich diversity of the ancient city of Jerusalem.
