So What Do We Do

Our Groups

Our main effort is forming and maintaining ongoing groups of interfaith encounter across the Holy Land and beyond. Each group offers an opportunity to meet the 'other' and build lasting inter-communal relations of friendship coupled with respect for the unique identity of each. In this way, each group is a seed of the desired relations between the various communities. Our vision includes hundreds of groups, of wide variety of kinds, so that every person will have a groups close to home and to heart. Here are the groups we formed so far:

Our Projects

Under this project, 5 groups consisting of 15-25 men and woman from Israel and the West Bank will be established. Participants will meet monthly and learn to know the “other”, connect with them and care for them. They will be empowered with the tools to initiate and lead future groups and activities and encourage others to join interfaith encounters as a means of promoting peace-building processes.

* Project funded with the support of Otto per Mille of the Waldensian Church of Italy

Partners from Hungary, Israel and the UK will empower young people in their countries and in further countries from the Euro-Med region to work and act for social change and develop conscious and deliberate thinking and dialogue on a wider scale. The central applied method of the empowering process is Digital Storytelling (DST).

During the project’s dissemination seminars, international training and local, a methodological booklet was developed and is available through the following links:



For many years the Interfaith Encounter Association organizes the project of collecting Chametz (=leavened food) before Pesach from Jewish families, for needy families in East Jerusalem (Christians and Muslims).

During both collection and distribution we are fully transparent: while collecting we make it clear that the Chametz will be delivered to needy families in East Jerusalem and upon delivery we stress that the food comes from Jewish families in West Jerusalem.
