Our colleague Rachel de Boor will be attending this year’s IAF steering committee meeting in Heppenheim, Germany, as a new steering committee member.
The International Abrahamitic Forum (IAF) was established by the International Council of Christians and Jews – ICCJ to facilitate trilateral cooperation and dialogue between Jews, Christians and Muslims and offers a global platform for those ICCJ member organizations and individuals who are already engaged in this trilateral dialogue.
The IAF Steering Committee was formed in 2018. The steering committee members are drawn from a broad representation of the three Abrahamic faith traditions and come from Europe (Italy, Germany), the USA, Iran and Southeast Asia (Singapore).
We are excited to be part of this important network and look forward to learning more about IAF’s activities!
˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
