Neve-Shalom village

Hello dear readers,

Today is the second day of our 2-days religious New Year Holidays. We enjoy nice weather and serene leisure.
Yesterday I had a great time visiting our daughter Nilly who lives in Neve-Shalom, a small village inhibiting an equal number of  Muslim and Christian Israeli Palestinians families and Jewish Israeli families.
Nilly and her husband were accepted by the local community and allowed to build their own house
in the village.  They recently moved to live there.  Nilly has her pottery studio on the first floor.
Here, just if you are interested, you can learn more about these peace-seeking people living side by side. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neve_Shalom. Adi and her family,  (Nilly's daughter, and our granddaughter) also have a house in Neve-Shalom.  They, for the time being, are away, living in London but will be back at the end of next year. Adi is a lawyer and fighter for human rights.

I brought along some ceramic miniatures to be painted, glazed and fired.

I couldn't stay long enough for the ice-cream-green paint to dry before glazing.  Nilly will glaze and then put them in the kiln to be fired.

Here let me show you the latest of Nilly's work.

Next visit I'll take photos of this beautiful village to show you.

I wish all my Jewish followers, here and abroad A Happy New Year!
A wonderful creative rest of the week to all my readers with blessings!!

  3. I wish you the Happiest of New Years, Drora!
    It is wonderful to have peace be the focus. There are many in the world who live in harmony despite their differences and it is important that we highlight those stories.
    Your new clay pieces are wonderful! I adore the color and can't wait to see them completed, and then what you'll do with them!
    Your daughter certainly got the talent from you - her pieces are brilliant!
