    Ronny Edry

    Founder, Peace Factory

    Ronny Edry is an Israeli graphic designer, teacher and father who created an online movement for peace in the Middle East with a simple Facebook post in March 2012. The image showed himself and his daughter with the words, “Iranians, we will never bomb your country. We heart you.” It sparked a dialogue between the two tumultuous countries and launched an online movement called Israel-Loves-Iran and the Peace Factory.

    Edry grew up in Paris and has lived in Israel since 1989. He is the author of several novels and teaches visual communication at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design.
