“Inter-Religious Dialogue as a Method of Peace-Building in Israel and Palestine,” by Rabbi Dr. Ronald Kronish

Inter-religious Dialogue is understood as a method of peace-building—bringing people together to learn to live in peace -- which is different than peace-making, whereby politicians and diplomats develop peace treaties between governments. In Israel and Palestine, we are engaged in interreligious dialogue in the midst of conflict, which means that we are not “resolving” the macro conflict, but are mitigating and managing it through our dialogue and educational programs. In recent years, we have embarked on pioneering programs which engage youth, young adults, religious leaders, women and educators in this process. Through our grass-roots educational work, we have developed a four-part model which combines personal encounter and interreligious learning, with discussion of core issues of the conflict and action projects. We believe that this model can resonate with many people in this field in Israel and Palestine and around the world.
