The project links women from Pittsburgh with women from Karmiel-Misgav through joint guided reading. In general, each group holds sessions separately. Once per "book" the two groups will convene for a single joint session to discuss the book in a moderated discussion.
The highlight of the project will be a joint tour in Israel to a location tied to one of the books and home hospitality for the Pittsburgh participants in the homes of their Israeli reading counterparts.
The emphasis is on literature portraying real-life women and Jewish or Israeli identities, thereby enabling both sides to gain a better look of 'how the other side lives'.
