Meet the Slim Peace Boston Team
New to the US!
Slim Peace Boston Groups represents a coming together of Jewish and Muslim women for a common goal of developing healthier eating habits, learning about nutrition, empowerment and a healthy self-esteem. Each group is led by a Jewish and Muslim Registered Dietitian / trained group facilitator. This is our 1st group to be hosted in the United States. (20 successful groups have been hosted in Jerusalem and Acre, Israel.)
About Slim Peace
Slim Peace Groups is inspired by the documentary film A Slim Peace, which brought together women who would have normally never met into a weight loss group. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2007 and screened on the Sundance Channel thru 2011.
Now more than ever is the time to come together. There is no other program that addresses women, health, nutrition, and religious backgrounds, neatly packaged in a 10-week group support system run neutrally by both a Muslim and Jewish leader, working together harmoniously, while focused on healthy living. Participants not only learn important steps to live more healthily for themselves but through the process, they also develop empathy for their counterparts - resulting in acceptance and understanding, as well as personal and physical transformation. Each group is approximately 20 women between the ages of 22 - 70 plus, comprising of 10 Jewish and 10 Muslim women participating.
