Help knit a community

In the Middle East, knitting (and crochet) are weapons of peace, bringing together different communities, across ethnic and religious boundaries. Old people teach youngsters. Muslim, Druze and Jewish Israelis sit together in knitting groups from North to South. They knit for themselves, they knit for those in need. There are now over 200 groups; there is even a group in the women’s prison.

 

The plan is to form parallel projects in Jordan and the Palestinian Authority, with local leadership. All three will work co-operatively, strengthening ties between the communities.
