Initiatives for the Reconciliation Between Israelis and Palestinians

from NCDD members Libby & Len Traubman‘s latest mailing…

The World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace (imamsrabbis.org) has declared 2008 the year of initiatives for the reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. The WCIR formally seeks to initiate rapprochement between Judaism and Islam. Two congresses – Brussels, January 2005, and Seville, March 2006 – were attended by religious leaders from 43 countries who are actively committed to the path of dialogue between their communities. Unfolding initiatives were inspired by the meetings and continue unfolding. Also, a historic first this March, 2008, was the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations (IJCIC) recommending to the collective Jewish community “Seek Peace and Pursue It: A Jewish Call to Muslim-Jewish Dialogue.” The IJCIC is a coalition of Jewish organizations representing world Jewry to other religions. Read the Jewish call. That statement welcomed, and was preceded on February 25, 2008 by, “A Call to Peace, Dialogue and Understanding between Muslims and Jewsissued by Muslim scholars.
