On Tuesday, our project manager Gil Shohat together with ELES colleague Maja Vataman participated in a roundtable discussion with the EU representative for Jewish life and the fight against antisemitism, Katharina von Schnurbein, at the Representation of the European Commission in Germany. One of the issues discussed was the need for European networking of initiatives in the field of interreligious/worldview dialogue in order to encourage the fight against anti-Semitism in all areas of civil society and to link it with other significant efforts for a pluralistic society based on solidarity. As a European programme, we consider this to be a great opportunity to continue to strengthen our engagement at the EU level and look forward to further exchanges. We would like to thank the Representation of the European Commission in Germany and Nikolaus von Peter for the invitation!
˝Some wise person once wrote “The whole entire world is a very narrow bridge and the main thing is to have no fear at all.” I feel that thanks to DialoguePerspectives the world is becoming a network of interconnected bridges that we are building between each other together. Beautiful bridges thanks to which we can try to create a world together, a world free from prejudices and fear.
