What is the ISOP? 

 

Founded in 2016 by Israeli Jewish and Arab educational organizations, the International School Of Peace (ISOP) is located on the island of Lesbos in Greece, serving the thousands of children living in refugee camps, primarily from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Africa. As increasing numbers of refugees are stranded on Lesbos and unable to enter Europe, the school continues to offer critical education and community building. The school is run primarily by volunteers and employs local refugees as teachers. Currently it serves 250 children, five afternoons a week. With increased support, ISOP can increase the number of students, teachers, and school hours, improve infrastructure and build a more lasting and sustainable structure to better support the students and their families.

 

The Lab/Shul Community Refugee Task Force was formed in 2018 to cultivate awareness and raise funds to ensure and improve the ISOP’s sustainability and ability to serve the refugee population on Lesbos. We were all refugees - as Jews, Americans, people from all different backgrounds and cultures - it’s on us to support our fellow human beings during this global crisis.
