We connect women from diverse communities to form long-term groups

Combining bonding and commitment with tools for social impact

“…But doubts and loves open up the world
like a mole, like a plough”.. (Yehuda Amichai)
Our meetings take each group member on a journey of self-empowerment, teaching us to better communicate and engage with the people in our live

  • Listening and communication tools: Professional instruction according to the “IDIA Method,” which practices active listening and effective message transmission as the basis of co-existence. At home, at work, within communities, and in our joint Israeli lives.

  • Continuity and a gradual process of aligning skills with challenges: The long term commitment and the modular yearly plan is designed for combining the establishing trust and friendship, with the dialogue tools and the discussions’ topics.

  • Knowledge enrichment: Texts and information serve as the foundation for constructive dialogue. At IDIA, meetings involve the reading and learning of engaging, universal, religious, meditative, poetry and prose texts; written passages that provide diverse and inspirational perspectives, sparking dialogue and a fascinating learning experience.

  • Meeting at our members’ homes: By meeting inside homes, we familiarize ourselves with the lives, culture and practices of our members. We experience our differences and similarities first hand, and realize how reaching understandings and compromises lead to joy and hope.

  • Expansion of circles of acquaintance: Mutual inspiration and encounters with communities in Israel and abroad.

  • Practicing the reaching of understandings: Reaching agreements and disagreements on relevant core subjects pertaining to our joint lives, formulating our thoughts and clearly communicating them.

  • Acquisition of tools to influence the joint space on social media: During meetings, group members practice using tools to cope and engage in dialogue culture on digital channels, including tools to monitor informational quality.

Let me know right away
if I'm disturbing you.
he said
as he stepped inside my door,
and I’ll leave the way I came.
Not only do you disturb me,
I answered,
You turn my whole world
upside down.
Welcome.

Other ways exist! We can listen and be heard – without violence and while recognizing what binds and what divides. We can clarify conflicts, while deepening out familiarity with our counterparts.
Leora, Secular, Central Israel
Exiting the bounds of what was familiar and similar to what was perceived as strange and foreign led me to understand that walls can be toppled by love, containment and empathy.
Gali, Secular, Central Israel
I started off fearing that a slippery slope would lead to the loss of my identity. When I learned to listen, I understood that constructive dialogue can together build a strong, constructive foundation and hope for the future.
Betty, Religious, Samaria
At Idia, we can speak openly on conflicts and on what hurts and angers. We can disagree and still feel a part of the group, experiencing a sense of belonging, partnership and even love.
Ayala, Secular, Central Israel
For me, Idia is the ability to speak and know that I am being listened to – and to listen and know that my fellow group members trust that I am truly listening to what they have to say.
Racheli, Religious, Samaria
