Temple Beth El Peace Pole Dedication-January 22, 2008

On January 22nd, more than 100 parents and children attended a ceremony to dedicate a peace pole recently at Temple Beth El in Aliso Viejo, California, organized by Sam Hahn.


“Our rabbi was talking about what more we can do for the world,” he said. “I got inspired to write a song about peace and to dedicate a peace pole. We wanted to plant a little seed of hope in our children.”

Hahn’s song contained the word “peace” in languages from every continent. His lyrics will be donated to the World Peace Prayer Society. Students from Top of the World School in Laguna Beach, the B’Hai Center of San Clemente, the Journey School in Aliso Viejo and Temple Beth El participated in the singing.
