Interfaith Encounter Association
ID: 580379493    Category:
Promoting genuine and sustainable peace and coexistence through joint community-building that is based on interactive interfaith dialogue.
The Interfaith Encounter Association encourages "ordinary" citizens to actively improve their society - so that it is accepting and respecting the unique identity of each community and the good neighborhood and friendship between them.
Interactive interfaith dialogue is used as most powrful means to promote such inter-communal relations.
The fact that the IEA is a-political, both in not dealing with political arguments and by not taking a political stand, enables people of all part of the political and religious-secular spectra to join its activities.
The 29 local centers IEA formed so far, encourage their participants to join an ongoing and deep process of self-education for better understanding and mutual respect. In this way a mini-community is created, exemplifing the desired relations of good neighborhood based mutual understanding and resepct. It acts as a model for the larger community and a seed for the development of these relations. We envision becoming a social movement.
