Mothers of Faith

This is a new and innovative project jointly organised by the Foundation and Lotus Life (a Muslim women organisation).

A group of Muslim and Jewish mothers with religious background and school-age children attended a series of four educational seminars, one of which took place during the Interfaith Week. They discussed a variety of issues which affects religious women in a secular society.

The project has now become an on-going project because the group decided to become a permanent forum, meeting every 2-3 months and leading educational projects with women and schools.
