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

My parents met in Poland, just after the war. They were the only survivors of their families. My brother was born in a refugee camp in Germany. I was born in Jerusalem. My parents never told us about what happened to them “there”, and we never asked.
When I was 10 years old, listening behind a closed door, I found out that my father had a wife and two children who were killed during the war. I ran and asked my brother if he knew about that. He said yes. We never mentioned it again. I don’t need the Holocaust Day to be reminded of what happened. Everyday of my life, I feel as if I, myself, were at the death camps.

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.
