Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to provide an opportunity for Arab women (Muslim, Christian, and Druze) to become leaders in their communities.

We operate on two levels: the first is to educate Arab women to be community leaders, and the second is to hold monthly interfaith meetings of women of the four religions. In March 2010, we held an event for Women’s Month. 300 women attended the program which featured music and special guests who are community leaders. In the summer, for the graduation ceremony of our home-based business course, we had 150 women attend, many of which are leaders of local organizations. The event featured arts and crafts that the students created and sold. This year we also held a TeenTalk program for young women from our community paired with young women in Jerusalem from TRUST – Emun with meetings at centers in both cities to discuss religious issues relevant to young women with a woman rabbi and a sheikya. We held a URI reception for Rev. Charles Gibbs with 30 Trust WIN CC members people Muslim, Christian, and Jewish from many nearby towns to honor him and to learn more about URI.
