You’re invited to a special session of CJP's Strategic Israel Engagement's Israel in Depth, created for members of Women’s Philanthropy. This unique program is designed for women interested in learning more about Israel with dynamic speakers, interactive presentations, and a rich array of educational resources.

Please join us for our winter session, where we will discuss the role of women in peacebuilding by watching Iris Zaki’s award-winning film, Women in Sink, a Boston Jewish Film Festival featured documentary.

The film invites you to listen in on conversations that take place in a little hair salon in Haifa which both Palestinian and Jewish women frequently visit. The director chats with them while shampooing their hair, and what emerges from these conversations about politics and love is an honest and nuanced portrayal of contemporary Israel.

Stay after the short film for an activity led by Boston Partners for Peace, a partnership between CJP and JCRC, and Women Wage Peace. Engage in conversation and creativity as we join artist Tova Speter for a workshop to create fabric squares inspired by thoughts of peace and hope. These will be included in a collaborative quilt in Israel, "Piece for Peace." Diverse women all around the world have contributed to the growing quilt that serves as an artistic expression of our desire for peace, and now, it's your turn. No art experience is needed, really!

You won’t want to miss this intimate opportunity to connect and learn with other women, while sharing your hopes for the future of the world.

Registration: $18 per person.
