A New Dawn in America - My Journey to the States


Jamal Alkarenawi - August 2019
It’s been a very eventful month where I traveled across several states and cities on the East Coast. Starting with Baltimore I proudly participated representing A New Dawn in the Negev at OLAM Focal Point 2019 Conference at the Pearlstone Retreat Center. Olam’s Focal Point is an amazing global service, focusing on international development, and humanitarian aid to network, exchanging ideas and best practices, as well as celebrate their shared commitment to serving the world’s most vulnerable individuals. An amazing group of people coming together to make the world a better place, to which I am thankful to the organizers for putting together and sponsoring A New Dawn in the Negev to come as a member, as well as because of all the wonderful people I met, and work they are doing.
While traveling in the United States I visited Washington D.C., New Jersey, New York City and Baltimore where I had the chance to speak with many people to explain A New Dawn in the Negev’s cause, and how our mission is to enable Bedouin and Arab youths to join and engage with as partners and friends in Israeli society.
