In Bethlehem we will participate in a women’s breakfast organized by Christian-Arab women and hear more about their work with women in this area. After a visit to Tabgha, Magdala, Capernaum and Nazareth we plan to visit Amal and some of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim women oft he region, who are participating in a peace art project (‘The women and their olive tree’).
