The founding group consists of secular women from the center, and national religions from Samaria. Different and very polarized in their worldviews. We thought that if we managed to reach a dialogue and reach understandings, then all those who care about the future here will join us.
Our founding group has been working together for six years. Over the years there are difficult days. Days when we understand that the rift is deep and there are gaps that will probably never be woven. Still, we do not give up on each other. During this time we developed and established the method of ideation and we realized that we succeeded.
We are an ideological method. We learned to speak in a way that allows us to listen, and to listen in a way that makes it possible to talk to us. Not generalize. Not to see tagged groups, but people, details. Different from each other even within their group. We learned to agree and disagree.
We have learned to give up the desire to “convert” the variance from us in our opinion and in the disagreement to find common ground. Gradually we discovered the commitment of all of us to a shared life in the State of Israel. As a result, more and more ideological groups are beginning to hold meetings across the country. More and more activities are aimed at influencing the culture of conversation on facebook.
