women from Pardes Hannah-Karkur and Arab women from Kfar Kara are welcoming one
another into their homes through the Cooking for Peace project.
Implemented in the framework of the Shared Communities Program between the two
towns, this initiative is creating a unique opportunity for women from both
sides to discover their commonalities and differences through the sharing of
recipes, culinary traditions and childhood memories.
week, the women gather in a different participant's home together with a
facilitator from Givat Haviva. The meeting host introduces the group to a
recipe of her choice and guides the women in preparing food while telling her
personal "story" behind the recipe.
project will result in a publication of all of the recipes and the
corresponding profiles of each participant in the program. This unique publication
can then be shared to reach hundreds of women in the two communities and across
– a testament to the shared communities vision.
