Zeitouna

In 2002 I co-founded Zeitouna (olive tree in Arabic) an Arab-Jewish women’s dialogue group based in Ann Arbor. The group is composed of six Arab and six Jewish women who work toward a just peace. Zeitouna’s mission: through dialogue to embody, model and promote the peaceful, just and sustainable coexistence of the Arab and Jewish peoples through connection, trust, empathy and action.

A documentary made by Laurie White, Refusing to be Enemies: The Zeitune Story, is available at www.refusingtobeenemies.org.
