TFP is proud to announce we will be opening a new site in the Samaritan Village on Mt. Gerzim. This site will serve around 30 students and is part of our effort to help educationally underserved communities in and around Nablus. The Samaritans are one of the oldest communities in the West Bank. There have been Samaritans in the Nablus area for thousands of years.
This project is being initiated with the help of Mr. Yakub Cohen of the Samaritan Legend Association and his family. Adam, Mr. Cohen’s oldest son, is a longtime student of Executive Director Sean Canavan. Classes will start mid-September.
