The Peace Pickup is coming everywhere

In the last 12 years, I initiate and participate in meetings of Israelis and Palestinians. When I started hearing the personal story of the people of the south Hebron hills, I was amazed by the great similarity, the powerful love to this land and the pain and suffering both sides experience.

In the direct encounters, you look at each other in the eyes and the heart opens. When the heart opens, a new space is opened, attentive to the story of the other, from which a connection is built and which brings mutual responsibility.

For me, this listening is the way to peace.

Every week I visit friends, Israelis and Palestinians, my neighbors from over the fence. I drink coffee with them, I hear their story, sometimes treat their pain, sometimes help with bureaucracy, play with the children, and more, but mostly I establish connections, which allow to rebuild the wounded trust of us all.

 

 

What have I done so far?

So far, in addition to cultivating friendly relations, I also have been:

1. Teaching “Tai Chi and Shiatsu for Peace”

2. Supporting individuals – young adults with a strong potential for personal development, who can develop their community and society. I maintain a deep and personal relationship with them, and invest in their empowerment.

3. “Presence Bearing” gatherings – Israelis and Internationals meeting with humans from across the separation wall, in an attentive and unmediated way.

 

4. Cultivating ways for self-sustained livelihood – assisting the establishing of small businesses, selling embroidery, second hand goods, honey, and more.

5. “Breath of fresh air” trips to Israel – for families, children and teachers. The trips include meetings with Israeli groups and individuals, and long-term relationships are encouraged.

In all these activities, I encourage and promote the participation of women, being sensitive to cultural and social aspects.

 

 

What do I plan to do with your help?

With your help, I hope to -

1. Initiate “Presence Bearing” gatherings, in a frequent fashion. These will allow more Israelis and Palestinians to listen to the to the story of the other, and to tell together a joint story that allows us all a “modus vivendi” = a way of living together.

2. Cultivating more possibilities for self-sustained livelihood for young Palestinians (singles under the age of 23 are forbidden by Israeli law to work in Israel), thus giving them the power to believe in themselves, support their families, and believe there is a way to live together on this land.

3. Holding Art workshops, such as carpentry, painting, mosaic, embroidery – for entertainment, enrichment, and support for potential work and livelihood.

  

 

4. “Accompany a child” project - I will invite people to accompany a child, and help nourish their self-esteem and sense of efficacy, that will allow them a better future, and for all of us a better world.

5. Continuing and expanding my everyday activities, initiating and hosting human encounters of people from both sides in the south Hebron hills area, and cultivating a true belief in peace.

I need the support to make this a “Marathon run”. It is a long process and I am willing to commit to it. I need your help so I can dedicate enough of my time, to support the desire for change that people on both sides already carry.

If you wish to be part of this change, you are invited to join me and/or support me, so we can join hands to cultivate true peace together.
