About this project:
My name is Cynthia. I was born in Brazil and raised in South Florida (United States), while my best friend was born in the United Arab Emirates and raised in North Carolina (United States).
I’m Jewish and she’s Muslim.
Instead of our religious differences keeping us apart, it has brought us together. We have been best friends for the past 11 years. Our bond has transcended religious differences, into a beautiful long-standing friendship.
If we can do it, why can’t others?
Tired of all the hate-filled rhetoric on both sides, I want to see less talk and more peace.
So I decided to spend a year in Israel/West Bank to find similar stories. To discover the friendships between Israeli-Jews, Israeli-Arabs, and Palestinians to see how and if, it’s possible to all live in Peace.
