SHANA TOVA HAPPY NEW YEAR
Traditionally, at the beginning of a new Jewish year, we send one another postcards at with “Happy New Near / Shana Tova”. This year, we would like to expand the tradition out of the borders of Israel and make it a regional event. To do that, we worked with a few Facebook pages from the “we love you” community
We wished everyone in Israel, in the Middle East and all over the world…
a happy new year : Shana Tova!
- Palestine loves-Israel
- Turning a new page for Peace
- Romancing the border

WOW! You don’t look like an enemy.
An Israeli guy and I got into a same elevator in a hotel in Bulgaria. He said something in Hebrew to me that I didn’t understand. I asked him: “Do I look like an Israeli to you?” He said: “Everyone in this hotel is Israeli. Say shalom and see how many people will shalom back.” I said shalom, and after we laughed he asked me where I came from. I said, “Iran”, and he said, “Wow, you don’t look like an enemy.” I told him: “it’s because I’m not one.” He laughed. It was that easy.

PEACE it’s VIRAL
PEACE starts with the people, one person at a time. Today it’s easier than ever to connect and reach out to one another. We can talk, we can meet, and we can start a new friendship without even leaving our homes just by the click of a button. One new person, One new connection. Peace is when we see and treat each other as people. All we have to do is talk.
