US Government Representatives and Dan Shapiro Join PeacePartners in a Basketball Game Including Israeli and Palestinian Players

US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro and other US government representatives joined PeacePlayers youth for a special game of basketball. 

PeacePlayers International (PPI) is a group of young Israeli and Palestinian basketball players who are active in promoting coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians.

This is the third year in a row that US government representatives have joined in this amazing initiative.

Basketball is used here as the bridge between people who are, unfortunately, often in opposition to each other.

This is definitely a slam dunk for peace that we hope will inspire others and show what is really important to the people of Israel.
