The battle line in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is drawn at the border towns of Sderot and Gaza, neighboring towns separated by a wall and a few hundred yards. People on both sides hate each other; their governments interact only through bombs and wars.

But, a few people on either side are trying to change that narrative with friendships across hostile borders.

These are not your normal friendships. They live under the shadow of death. They have lost friends, families and properties. But, instead of hate, they have chosen love and are bridging the river of blood with friendship.

Unlike most friendships, they hardly ever meet because their governments forbid it. Organizing and communicating though phones and social media, they have staged events and rallies in Sderot and Gaza, often at the risk of their lives.

ASWAT ACHERIM (Other Voices) is their story.
