Seeking Peace:- "bilingually"

I've been creating ceramic bowls and tiles to express my hopes and wishes for a negotiated Middle East peace. I am also working with J-Street, as Local chair (of a newly-forming chapter). The bowls read: "Seek Peace and Pursue it", in Hebrew and Arabic. It is a verse from Torah, translated into Arabic by UNM Professor Mohammed Ali.

I hope these images bring some sense of what many of us are trying to create: a new paradigm for  two Semitic peoples, living side by side, in peace and justice.
