Profile Information

My personal story:
I was born in Tel Aviv, lived almost my entire life in Holon. A native speaker of Hebrew, but also speak English, Arabic, some French and a bit of Spanish. I have a BA degree in linguistics. I am very active in the Israeli chapter of Wikimedia and in the Hebrew and Arabic versions of Wikipedia.
Why I want peace:
My grandparents had to face two world war, lost most of their families, and eventually fled their homes to save their lives. They found refuge in Tel Aviv. They mourned the past, but regarded living here as a huge privilege as they were devoted Zionists. My father had to go to three wars and postponed his wedding with my mother to respect a family member who was killed. Striving for peace is quite trivial having been brought up with these stories at the background of our lives.
Interests and activities:
Reading, writing, traveling
Something you didn't know about me:
Due to a bureaucratic oddity, I was declared the IDF women's department champion in Israeli history and geogrphy competition. I was 19 years old, doing my copulsory service as a teacher.
How I found
I met Eyal at the annual Jaffa Conference.
What I want to achieve here:
I am still exploring this site.

A look into Islam - the holy month of Ramadan

Posted on August 17, 2009 at 4:18pm 0 Comments

Ramadan رمضان is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. In the pre-Islamic era (known in Arabic as Al-Jahiliya), Arabs used a lunisolar calendar, similar to the one used by Jews today, or the one used in ancient Babylonia. During that time, Ramadan occurred at the heart of Summer, hence its name: "the month of ember" or "the month of hot ember-like sand" (akin to Hebrew רמץ). Today, Muslim use a purely lunar calendar, and therefore Ramadan can occur in any season of the year - each year a bit… Continue

A look into the past - the British Mandate of Palestine

Posted on August 15, 2009 at 11:05pm 0 Comments

The British Mandate of Palestine was the political entity that governed the region known in English as Palestine from July 1920 until the 14th of May 1948. Its territory included what is known today as the State of Israel, the Palestinian Territories (the West Bank and the Gaza Strip) and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The part east to the Jordan River and Wadi Araba was given an autonomous status as the Emirate of Transjordan, while the western part of the territory was governed by a British… Continue

Dear friends
We are starting this year's olive harvest on October 11th.
We call upon you to join us and pick olives with us - which will be a great help considering the situation of our work at this time.
Hopefully you will enjoy the excitement and special atmosphere of these occasions - brewing tea over an outdoors campfire
in the olive groves on our hills, friendly exchanges of past harvest season stories and making new friends.
You are invited to bring your cameras along and take photos.
For any further information, please to don't hesitate to contact me
by phone: 0546723184 or email
Hope to see you there,

סיפור אמיתי
אני ערבי פלסטיני מהכפר חיזמה הנמצא בין ירושלים רמאללה
כשהייתי בגיל 15 נלחמתי נגד הכיבוש הישראלי
בשבל החופש הייתי חושיב כל אדם יהודי חייל או אזרח גבר או אישה קטן או גדול צריך לההרג
עד בא יום נסיתי לשלול לבן אדם את חיים שלו לא הייתי מכיר אתו היה בשביל יהודי וכל יהודי היא המטרה שלי להרוג
תאמינו לי הייתי רק ילד לא מבין כלום בפוליטיקה
או את הסכסוך הערבי הישראלי
בסוף נעצרתי לתקופה של 12 שנים
למדע כל זה קרה בשנת האינתיפאדה הראשונה 1987. באותו שלב. אף אחד לא מדבר על שלום
רק מדברים שני הצדדים רק על אלימות

התחלתי לגדול ואני בכלא התחלתי ללמוד לקרוא
ספרים על פוליטיקה. ספרות. שירה וסיפורים העולם.
השלום במדריד.
ועידת מדריד נתן לי תקווה החיים לחיות בשלןם
ובכבוד . למדתי כי אלימות תבי רק אלימות
והשלום הא הפתרון היחיד בין שני העמים למען עתיד יפה מכובד בין שני העמים
אנחנו חיים על אותה קרקע.אנחנו שכנים שותים מאותו המים מתפללים עבור אלוהים אחד
אנו צריכים לחיות בשלום על בסיס של הדת לאלוהים והאדמה לכלאם
