Bread for Peace
Symbol of life, hope, prosperity, unity
and sharing, a necessity for every human being
of any culture.
I will give you rain in due season, so
that the land will bear its crops, and the
trees their fruit; your threshing will last
till vintage time, and your vintage till the
time for sowing, and you will have food to
eat in abundance.
I will establish peace in the land, that you
may lie down to rest without anxiety. I will
rid the country of ravenous beasts, and keep
the sword of war from sweeping across your
On the 1st of June 2005, 50 Israeli women
passed the check point to meet 50 Palestinian
women in front of the bakery of Samar Sahhar of
Bethany, near Jerusalem. In different cities of
Italy many ovens were set up in the streets so
that passers-by could bake bread, and at the
same time many mothers at children’s schools
baked bread as we did in Bethany.
This landmark event was organized by
Angelica Edna Calò Livné, Israeli founder of
Beresheet LaShalom Foundation, Israel, and her
Palestinian friend Samar Sahhar, founder
of Lazarus Home for Girls of Bethany, with whom
she shares projects in Israel and
PA territory on coexistence of Arabs and
Jews in Israel.
The message was received by many all over
Italy, Israel and Palestine and the day was one
of great success and excitement. Our idea for
next year is to organize this emotional and
successful event, on the same basis, in as many
other places as possible all over the world.
We would like to invite you to take part and
share our vision of bringing a simple message of
humanity to all, baking bread together as a
symbol of peace.
