Arab and Jewish Women’s Group

This is a group of 27 Arab and Jewish women from Jaffa that meets once a month—getting to know each other, and cooperating in a friendly environment that allows for individual and communal empowerment. This group is currently in its third year of operation, and is focused on the process of creating change in the community of Jaffa. This project is a joint effort with JCJCR, which specializes in group dialogue for Arab and Jewish women. In light of this initiative’s success, another group of Arab and Jewish women was founded at the end of 2014.
