*A new approach to life*

Could it be that the path toward peace in the Middle East is quietly being paved by cancer patients? Imagine ultra-Orthodox, modern-Orthodox and secular Jewish women and Muslim and Christian Israeli-Arab and Palestinian women who had never met before leaving their political and sectorial views at the door and hugging and dancing with each other.

That actually happened, during a twoday retreat in the Daniel Hotel at Ein Bokek on the Dead Sea, organized last month by Life’s Door (www.lifesdoor.org.il), a voluntary organization that helps families cope with illness and the end of life. With roots in the US and its primary activity now in Israel, it has reached over 20,000 patients, family members and professionals who are grappling with these issues in their personal and professional lives.
