Leah Mosenson a 31 year-old Israeli woman, Layla to her friends, has been living with Sudkiya Awad for the past two years. Sudkiya is a Palestinian mother of 15 children whose home is in Budrus, a Hamas village on the West Bank. The separation barrier crosses the Awad family’s olive groves; they lost all of their land. Layla and other Israeli volunteers have organised »work-shops for peace » about bio-intensive agriculture and Palestinian cooking. They collect funds from the work-shop participants to help the Awad family survive. The Israeli volunteers respect local traditions; they ensure they are dressed modestly and hold separate work-shops for men and women. In 2006, Layla was jailed for 2 months, the first person to be given a prison sentence for committing violence during protests against the Israeli separation barrier.
