Histoire administrative

The Little Sisters of Joy is an ecumenical Foundation of Prayer, Peace and Reconciliation. It was founded in 1999 by Gila Margolin and became a foundation in 2004. The Foundation has over 700 friends in 35 countries.

The Foundation works to build bridges between Jews and Christians, Jews and Arabs, and between Catholics, Protestants and the Orthodox. It aims to effect reconciliation within individuals and has also worked on outreach to the Indigenous Canadian community.

One of its main outreach channels includes regular "Concerts for Peace and Reconciliation" in which Margolin performs songs of the 60s, American folk music and Hebrew music. The Little Sisters of Joy believes that music and the arts are a key part of the healing process.
