KIVUNIM's growing relationship with the Tibetan exiles in Dharamsala, India has been developing over almost a decade.  This year (2017-18) we invited Geshe Tenzin Damchoe to come to Israel and teach our preparatory unit on Buddhism and Tibetan history while we shared with him the magnificent story of Jerusalem and our national history.  But the relationship reached its peak when we were invited to a 50 minute private audience with His Holiness on February 12, 2018. 

This experience, this powerful inspirational and spiritual encounter brought tears to the eyes of many seemingly hardened American Jewish teens.  It opened our hearts to a powerful and hopeful image of what can be.  KIVUNIM's travels take us into the worlds of the most under-privileged in the world when we visit the slums of Mumbai.  But we also encounter many of the most creative and imaginative leaders as well.  All are part of the magnificent year-long and then life-long journey that is KIVUNIM.
