As our usual venue @Addison Rd Community Centre is still operating as an emergency food relief depot, we are having our trivia night this year at Kogarah High School. Street parking available or carpark entry through Victoria St.
“Friends of Hebron Trivia With a Cause” is organised by Palestine Fair Trade Australia with Friends of Hebron Sydney.
‘Mission: Hebron’ is a prize-winning short documentary based on a series of interviews conducted by the director, Rona Segal, with Breaking the Silence testifiers – who speak about their service in the city of Hebron.
‘Mission: Hebron’ was published today in the op-docs section of the New York Times website and can now be viewed in full here: https://nyti.ms/3CmqGB9.
Together, they describe a horrifying yet mundane routine of manning checkpoints, invading homes, night time arrests, violently dispersing protests and so on. The former IDF soldiers paint a picture of what serving in the second largest Palestinian city in the occupied territories requires, the atmosphere in the city and their interaction with the local population – both Palestinians and settlers – and how they felt about it all.
Friends of Hebron Sydney is excited about its new project – supporting the rebuilding of a school in one of Hebron’s outlying villages*.
Last year, Israel’s military demolished the school buildings then confiscated tents provided as substitute classrooms, along with all the equipment, even the blackboards and chalk. Children finished the school year in a small tent, erected every morning then taken down and hidden in a cave at night.
It’s that time again where we get together for a jam-packed evening of eclectic trivia, mind bending challenges and some fabulous Palestinian food. Tickets are selling fast so don’t miss out.Book now!

Our 2019 Achievements
Since our last Trivia night, we’ve had a busy year supporting three important projects:
a major contribution to the cost of rebuilding a school in one of Hebron’s outlying villages,
continued funding for the Dkaika school access project,
a returned to our first ever kindy (the Huda kindergarten) to provide wages for two early childhood teachers.
Help us provide support for these critical projects in areas where schooling is severely impacted by the occupation. In 2019, the General Assembly Security Council verified “118 incidents of interference with education in the Occupied Palestinian Territory by Israeli forces (113) and Israeli settlers (5), affecting 23,188 children.”
Help us ensure teachers in the Tel Rumeida kindergarten are paid a living wage and support the Dkaika School Transport project which provides safe transport for young learners to their closest school (7km away) and for young women to attend university.
The support of The Big Ride from Brisbane to Byron is essential if we are to be able to pay the Tel Rumeida kindergarten teachers a living wage and continue to support the Dkaika School Transport project providint essential safe transport for students to their closest high school (7km away) or university (25km).

The Palestinian city of Hebron has long been famous for its ceramics and glass-blowing industries.
Traditional Palestinian ceramics are handcrafted ceramics and recognised internationally for their distinctive style and the flower and arabesque patterns, with the intricate details all painted by hand.
Our ceramics are available at The Fair Trade Emporium in the Addison Road Community Centre in Marrickville. This shop is open Fridays 11am -5pm and Saturdays & Sundays 9am-3pm. Watch our Facebook page for sales and markets. As usual, all proceeds go to support our education projects in the city of Hebron and surrounding villages.
Our ceramics are produced at a traditional
family-owned factory in Hebron and our latest
shipment includes g a wide range of colorful hand-painted plates, vases, hanging
ornaments, tiles, cups, mugs and coffee sets.The skills needed to produce these artisanal wares are handed down through the generations.
Hand-painting these unique flower and
arabesque patterns is followed by firing in an open area and charcoal-fuelled kilns.
Ceramics factories in Hebron produce a wide range of products which include household items like wine glasses, dishes, bowls and flower pots as well as tiles and mirrors. There is a wide range of designs with the traditional black and blue floral patterns perhaps the best known while Holy Land motifs and modern designs are also popular.
Join us for an evening of fun, facts, delicious food and games – all for a good cause! Help Friends of Hebron pay the wages of three early-childhood teachers working in the Old City of Hebron, as well as the Dkaika education access project .
This project provides safe transport for young learners to their closest school (7km away) and for young women to attend university. Photos here.
