What happens when a group of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian women in the Western Galilee come together for conversation – people who traditionally wouldn’t interact on a personal level? Could they overcome obstacles resulting from political tensions, religious differences, and diverse upbringings? Is it possible to find common ground to develop a relationship that could bring about larger change in Israel?
Twelve Israeli women who did come together in this way will visit Fort Wayne for three days in October to take their story to schools, universities – and the public. They’ll share their experiences being part of the Women Leading a Dialogue program sponsored by Partnership2Gether in the Western Galilee. The Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne is one of the communities in the U.S. affiliated with the Partnership2Gether program and is hosting the women during their stay in our community.
Please plan to join us on Wednesday, October 24 at 7 p.m. at The History Center, 302 E. Berry Street, to hear these vibrant women share how they overcome their differences to forge strong friendships and build leadership and project-building skills. A reception will follow the program. Thank you to the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation for its support.
