The Influence of The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict on Interreligious Dialogue Around the World

Invitation to Webinar

Zoom Webinar

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict seems to be a ‘hot potato’ in many interreligious initiatives outside of the Holy Land. The topic can be completely ignored or mishandled due to the sensitivities around it; the potato is either thrown out of the initiative or it burns the hands of the participants. Either way, it can have major consequences on peoples’ commitment to interreligious dialogue in such cases. How then should initiatives deal with the conflict? How does the Israeli-Palestinian conflict influence interreligious relations and dialogue in different parts of the world? What are some of the challenges in addressing the conflict in interreligious initiatives? Do interreligious initiatives around the world have the experience, knowledge and skills to facilitate such conversations? To watch the discussion click here.

From Separation to Inclusion – The Rossing Report July 2022

As a parent who raised three children in Jerusalem, I insisted that they engage in some type of interreligious or Israeli-Palestinian dialogue initiative before they graduated from High School. Had I not placed such a condition, my children would have had no contact with the ‘other’ before starting their adult lives.

The Power of Stories in Interreligious Dialogue and Peacebuilding – The Rossing Report April 2022

As we spend time with our families during Ramadan, Passover and Easter, stories will be shared between us. We often forget about the power of a story and how it shapes who we are – a lesson that was the focus for one of our groups over the past few months. Within the walls of an old house in Ramle, eleven students sat down together to start a conversation.
