Hackney is twinned at grassroots level with Beit Surik, North West of Jerusalem. We aim to foster friendship and understanding of the plight of the people of Beit Surik, under Israeli occupation and highlight the humanitarian issues affecting its people.

Beit Surik is almost isolated by the wall, fences and a settler only road (www.imemc.org/article/52004). Although Jerusalem is visible from the village, most villagers cannot nor ever have visited it. A Twinning committee now also exists in Beit Surik. Projects supported include the Women's Committee (embroidered cushions etc.) and the Graduates book scheme. We are also now trying to raise money for chairs for local women's centre.

Hackney is officially twinned with Haifa in Israel. Additionally there is a group at Homerton Hospital which is twinned with Haifa's Rambam Hospital in Israel. These groups are aggressively pro Israel.

2011 - Hackney's BSix Sixth Form College is now twinned with a local school.

Delegation visit November 2005

Hackney visited the village of Beit Surik, north west of Jerusalem in November 2005. Read our report here.

Activist visit April 2006

A further week was spent in Beit Surik in April 2006 to help develop the link. A full report will be on the Hackney Beit Surik website shortly.
