In the past months the events in Israel and Palestine have created a lot of tension within our communities. We wanted to send a message of peace and unity, and to show that we stand together no matter what.
We organised a small gathering in North London and we ended up with a wonderful turnout, with nearly 30 women and girls who dropped everything to join us for mint tea, brownies, huge smiles and loads of chat!!
It was a really special afternoon. Passers by asked us what was going on and we told them it was a peace gathering of Jewish and Muslim women. They all said “how wonderful” – and it truly was #peace #salaam #shalom.
