Event Information

Friends Who Are Going
Event description


The annual Room for Hope Festival connects us with our sisters and brothers from the Holy Land by bringing talented and successful students and faculty from Dar al-Kalima University in Bethlehem, Palestine. This year’s festival is no exception as we welcome musicians, filmmakers, culinary artists and leaders from the Holy Land. In a country with limited natural resources, this Bright Stars of Bethlehem supported University provides degrees and opportunities that reflect Palestine's emerging needs and equips students with vital skills for the 21st century job market. Join us in celebrating and supporting our students achive their dreams.
