Women’s Interfaith Network of the Middle East and North Africa (WIN MENA) Cooperation Circle (CC) was formed by Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Egyptian, Israeli, Jordanian, Palestinian, Tunisian women at the 2003 MENA Conference, with the goal of creating interfaith women’s solidarity and the opportunity to pursue joint activities. CC members regularly meet in conjunction with the annual MENA Region Conferences in Jordan. They hold a three day Women’s Interfaith Leadership Workshop in Amman. Additionally, they focus on promoting interfaith understanding and solidarity among women of the Abrahamic religions in our region.
