Jewish families were hosted by Palestinian families for a post-fast meal in Jerusalem. Most of the guests had never even met the hosts Bronka and Aref Tahboub prior to the event. The meeting was organized by Kids4Peace, a grassroots organization that brings together Muslim, Christian and Jewish children in Jerusalem. The population in Jerusalem is 2/3 Jewish and 1/3 Arab and the meetings have continued despite more than a year of tensions. I love where Bronka says "We are all humans and I wanted to share the good precious holy moments of Ramadan with other people. Everyone has a different view...we need to share...to remove the anger and the sadness in the area."
