A letter from the Dalai Lama
The 14th Dalai Lama's letter on his support for TJYE.

I am very happy with the Tibetan/Jewish Youth Exchange project for two reasons: Firstly, I have always believed that Tibetans can learn from the experience of over two thousand years of Jewish diaspora. Secondly, exchange programs of this kind are always useful in creating exposure for Tibetan youths and an opportunity to learn new skills. Both of these are important to the Tibetan people, particularly at this very critical time in our history.

I have met with the young participants of the TJYE project recently on June 8, 2001 and have been encouraged with what they have achieved so far and of their determination to continue the good work. In this context I am happy to learn about the Cultural Exchange & Leadership Skills Training Programme that TJYE is undertaking presently. I fully support the work of TJYE and would like to appeal others to do the same.

H.H. The 14th Dalai Lama, 9th of July 2001
