My name is Jeremy Pesach Stadlin and I'm very happy to launch this exciting campaign to raise support for UNIFY Jerusalem & Harmony in the Holy Land. Since being invited by UNIFY & The Shift Network to join their global projects just two short weeks ago, we've put together an exceptional team of outstanding human beings who have been dedicated to building peace for many years. We're very humbled to be part of bringing this inspirational message of healing from Jerusalem to the world.
Who We Are:

What We're Doing:
UNIFY Jerusalem: On Friday, December 21st, at 1pm IST, 11am GMT, prominent leaders of the Abrahamic faiths - Islam, Christianity and Judaism - will offer prayers and meditations from sacred sites including The Dome of the Rock/Noble Sancutary, The Western Wall, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This will be live-streamed to the world in partnership with UNIFY, the largest synchronized prayer & meditation event in the history of humanity! Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people of all faiths will unite, at the same exact time, at homes and sacred sites around the world such as the pyramids in Giza, Stonehenge, Chitzen Itza, Time Square, and many, many more. www.unify.org
Harmony in the Holy Land will be the pinnacle concert event in Jerusalem on Sat. evening, Dec. 22nd when interfaith leaders and musicians of the Abrahamic faiths join together in a musical prayer for peace that will be live-streamed as part of the 33-hour Birth 2012 global broadcast produced by The Shift Network. We are very excited to be offering a powerful message of healing from the Holy Land as part of this global birth of a new humanity in connection with evolutionary leaders like Stephen Dinan, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Neale Donald Walsch, Dr. Michael Beckwith, and many more inspirational voices of our times. www.birth2012.com, www.theshiftnetwork.com
This is the first time in history that a synchronized prayer/meditation of this magnitude will occur. Many people feel that Jerusalem, as a spiritual epicenter, is the heart of the world, and that, if there can be peace in Israel/Palestine, there can be peace in the world. We are working to bring the people of Jerusalem a little bit closer to experiencing that healing in profound and meaningful ways.
Your donation is tax-deductible, and the end of the fiscal year is right around the corner. Please support our efforts and help make this a most incredible and monumental experience! With all the brokenness that people hear about in this region, now is a time for healing. You are a peace of the puzzle.
Our production is already underway with the assistance of 2BVibes, a professional concert production company which regularly produces events for acclaimed international and local musical artists.
