I´m jewish born in Lebanon, imigrated to Israel em 1968 and now I live in Brazil. I´m a visual artist and lebanese food cooking teacher. I developped a project for peace through food called "POT-Peace On the Table", where I use food to put people together to share a meal.I´ve already presented this project in a museum in SP and in the University of Agriculture in Israel.
Why I want peace:
As a jewish born in an arab country, I have no conflict inside me to admire and apreciate both cultures.I don´t agree nowadays with the politics of Israel towards the palestinians and try to make a difference with something that I can do, which is cooking lebanese food (arab). In the Bible, we are designated to be a light to the "Goyim", other people, and I see that we are getting far away from that. We are no more as ethical as we should be and used to be.
Interests and activities:
My project "POT- Peace On the Table" has many sub-projects, as a book that I published last year telling my story from Lebanon till my arrival to Brazil, all of it with recipes I´ve inherited from my mother. Another thing, is friendly gatherings between women from both communities, jews and muslims, always around a well served table with arab food.
i would like to be more involved in this subject, know what other organizations are doing and expand my contacts with these persons. And if I can help with my ideas and projects , I´ll be very glad to cooperate.

Thank you Dr. Nabil for your message! I’m going on with my Peace project and now I ve just opened a Hummus factory with my son in law, as I consider hummus a symbolic food for peace. To make a difference here inSao Paulo, I decided to admit only women each of them from a different religion. As we are far away from the Middle East and its conflicts, I consider that we can challenge peaceful coexistence of the religions here in Brazil. And part of the profits will support organizations which work for human rights. I choose the name of the brand Com.Pot- including this way POT-Peace On theTable the name of my project.
I am delighted to know that you are proud of your birth place and its my pleasure to be a friend with a peacemaker as well as Middle Eastern food cooking teacher , I love Baba Ghanoj , Falafel and my best is Keeba .
good luck with your Delicious project :) "POT-Peace On the Table"
