Folk singer Peter Yarrow - of the legendary Peter, Paul and Mary - will be in Israel from March 28 through April 4 to present children's workshops entitled "Operation Respect" and to perform for invitation-only crowds at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv and the Cinematheque in Jerusalem. He will be here under the auspices of the US Embassy.
Yarrow, a lifelong social activist and educator, developed Operation Respect in 2000 to increase understanding and tolerance among schoolchildren in areas in the US and around the world where mutual respect may be lacking. The program promotes civility and conflict resolution in schools. The US Embassy is partnering with Yarrow to translate Operation Respect into Hebrew and Arabic.
