The Forum for Discussion of Israel and Palestine (FODIP) - Peacebuilders Project
While inter faith work in the UK is abundant and overwhelmingly positive, the issue of the Middle East and, in particular, Israel/Palestine can threaten to derail good relations and cause divisions between and within faith communities. As part of our ongoing work, the Peacebuilders project will train and equip Christians to lead and promote positive and informed dialogue among Jews, Christians and Muslims, and those of other faiths or none.
Working with our trained facilitators, course students will engage with the issues through online and in-person sessions, using a range of voices from communities here and in the Middle East. Not only will this enable participants to gain a fuller picture of the region, but it will also provide them with skills and opportunities to be peace-builders and to help mend broken relationships between and within communities here. http://www.fodip.org.uk/
