    Dear Friends,

    I am glad to inform you that my film: THE POMEGRANATE OF RECONCILIATION AND HONOR, PRESENTED YESTERDAY AT THE CINEMATHEQUE IN TEL AVIV, WAS A GREAT SUCCESS. The film was chosen to be shown on November 30, the “National Day in memory of the expulsion of the Jews from Arab countries,” in mid twentieth century. I attach one of my peace poems that was sung in this documentary film, and that was highly praised.

    The following poem is a Jewish – Egyptian blessing praising the relation between human beings and nature. The green week also represents all the good qualities and values in the world: especially peace, love and respect of the family , of life and of all humanity.

    A Green Week

    A week like fresh mint,

    a green week spreading

    its peaceful fragrance to the roots

    of my being

    “Have a green week!”

    My father used to bless us

    on Saturday nights in Cairo,

    when he came back from the “Gates of Heaven”

    the grand synagogue in Adli street

    “Have a green year”

    he beamed,

    brandishing a fresh, fragrant mint branch

    over our keen curly heads –

    but don’t keep it just to yourselves,

    that flourishing green week –

    give it back

    to the world

    fully blossoming.

    Who will give me

    a green week

    now that he’s gone?

    Now that the Gates of Heaven

    are shut?

    Only peace,

    Only a fragrant mint peace.

    I WARMLY THANK ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO CAME TO SHARE THIS MOVING EVENT WITH ME ON THIS NATIONAL DAY.

    Ada Aharoni

      I like the film THE POMEGRANATE OF RECONCILIATION AND HONOR by Prof. Ada Aharoni because it can promote peace with Palestinians and Israelis conflict and can be an example to other conflicts.
