CILR IS PROUD TO SUPPORT JEWS AGAINST ANTISEMITISM CANADA-WEBINAR
The Antisemitism Toolbox Part 2: BUILDING BRIDGES OF PEACE March 22, 2021 at 7pm EDT Register here
Fresh off the Abraham Accords, it illustrates the growing acceptance among former enemies that Israel should be recognized among the nations of the world. Activists of many faiths will discuss how and why they became allies of Israel. They will also talk about “next step thinking”: the kinds of dialog and engagement that we should have with those willing to become allies. How will the normalization change interfaith relationships in the Middle East and in the West?
