A gathering of women in Jurish

 

Yesterday, 9.12.14, a moving event was held in the village of Jurish between twenty-one members of Machsom Watch and participants in the women’s club in the village.  The connection between us was strengthened as a result of our activity in the village teaching English and yoga, first to women and then to girls.  We drove to the village in a caravan of cars flying Machsom Watch banners.  We were very warmly welcomed by the women.  The high point of the visit was the conversation in the club.  Petahya, who’s fluent in both languages, enabled a free flow of communication between us and the Palestinian women, which contributed to the relaxed atmosphere, openness and the interest members of each group displayed about the other.

The meeting alJorishlowed those of our members who aren’t involved with the villages to obtain a sense of the warm human relationships and the trust that has developed as a result of our ongoing work in the villages, a connection which also affects other family members and the community.
