“Hope Valley” is the story of two women, one Jewish-Israeli and one Palestinian-Israeli, who come together to form the unlikeliest of friendships. Tikvah and Ruby meet one summer day right before the outbreak of the 2nd intifada, in the Galilean valley that separates the segregated villages in which the two women live.

In Hope Valley we meet two strong women from nations in conflict, who circle each other and, in recognizing each other's pain, offer us hope that fear and resentment can grow into love.

Haviva is the founding rabbi of ‘Shmaya: A Mikveh for Mind, Body and Soul’ on Kibbutz Hannaton in the Lower Galilee, and works as a spiritual companion for individuals and couples.
