We live in a local community where there is often violence based on mistrust and fear between the different religious groups. We see that women can meet together to learn about religions within our community and create harmony together and have a positive influence on our families and larger social circles. We have held regular meetings for four years in different religious groups to get to know each other and our customs so as to support women to create calm and harmony between religious groups in our community. Recently we held a large meeting with deep discussion about our religious holidays – sharing customs and rituals. We hold regular meetings with Jewish women’s groups from other communities to strengthen connections between women in our local region and country - from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem -- and to learn more about other religions. We are a program within the Daliat Ha Carmel Community Center and therefore are part of the Israeli National Community Center system and have access to meet regularly with the twenty other Arab community centers, and the many Jewish community centers.

We have been working to strengthen interfaith cooperation by worshiping God through prayer, rituals, and discussions about the concept of URI at each community's sacred worshiping place (eg: masjid, church, Gurudwar). We are a major constituent of the Manipur Peace Committee, which was formed during the June 2001 uprising and has the same goal as that of URI. We made a timely appeal to government officials, including India's Prime Minister, for restoring peace and communal harmony among Hindus and Muslims. Members of these two faith groups were responsible for creating the Godhara Carnage which claimed the lives of women and children and damaged thousands of rupees worth of property.
Our purpose is to provide educational opportunities for children and to promote communal harmony through humanitarian service.
