Motivational Dialogue Sessions

Facing the isolation we imposed on ourselves to try and contain the pandemic, protecting the most vulnerable among us, many are looking for ways to experience a sense of community, for an opportunity to have a meaningful conversation.

We would like to make our modest contribution, and we will be organizing online meetings we call “Motivational Dialogue Sessions”. The format is simple: a guest speaker will deliver a presentation of 10 to 15 minutes, and a conversation will follow.

The first meeting will be held this Wednesday, 6 May, at 11am UTC on Microsoft Teams. Rabbi Bob Carroll from the Interfaith Encounter Association, our member group promoting dialogue and reconciliation between Jews, Muslims and Christians in Israel and the PA territories, will talk about religious freedom in times of the pandemic and the responses of various religious communities.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Stay safe and healthy!
