The Weekly Shot: Israeli and Palestinian Women's Peace Quilt

The WIN URI Cooperation Circle (Women's Interfaith Network of the URI) held important and fruitful meetings in San Francisco, CA, USA last June, during the Accelerate Peace conference gathering. The meetings were not just limited to the members in San Francisco - one Zoom video call remotely connected 30 women from across the world, including Argentina and Pakistan. The photo shows in-person participants standing with the Israeli and Palestinian Women's Peace Quilt, created in Jerusalem by 72 Israeli and Palestinian women designing and creating a symbol of their interfaith sisterhood in the midst of violent conflict.
