Dialogue and Diversity
Three years ago, following several terror attacks in Brussels, our society was at risk of fragmentation, if not already fragmented. The European Jewish Community Centre initiated educational activities to bring together people of all creeds to create a better understanding of each other’s religion, culture, tradition and life challenges.
In 2017, Dialogue & Diversity was born: a Jewish initiative of intercultural dialogue bringing together Jews, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and non-confessionals around one same project: to promote the understanding and acceptance of our differences – of sex, religion or culture in order to reduce stereotypes and consolidate and more inclusive society. To this end, D&D facilitates the knowledge of others, while highlighting our operating mechanisms in the face of difference; then raise awareness of the importance of respect and exchanges between the religious and cultural communities and to celebrate our diversity.
