Help Us Empower Peacemakers
& Help Us 'Carry The Dream'
The Jerusalem Prayer Project (JPP) has been self-funded by a combination of personal assets of its producers and benefactor donations.
To date, $60,000+ 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 film production for the documentary series, ‘Warriors of the Heart: Peacemakers in the Holy Land’. An additional production includes the Martin Luther King music video tribute, “We Carry the Dream”.
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.
Stephen made two additional trips to Israel and did extensive filming of the Women Wage Peace program, ‘Journey to Peace’.
The “Women Wage Peace” segment will be released in early 2018 followed by additional segments including the story of Israeli settler and Orthodox Rabbi Hanan Schlesinger and his partnership with Palestinian political activist, Ali Abu Awaad. Other compelling stories are also in production.
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.
