Voice of Salam is a non-partisan, non-political organisation made of up members of varied faith and cultural backgrounds. Voice of Salam does not hold an official position on political issues and global conflicts including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Voice of Salam would like to see a future free from violence in which Israelis and Palestinians can both live in freedom, peace and security.
Key areas of work:

Work specifically on Jewish-Muslim relations:
At Voice of Salam, we’re passionate about showing the world that Muslims and Jews are friends and that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is much more complicated than often portrayed. Within the conflict itself, there is also hope!
We’re actively challenging antisemitism and anti-Muslim hate in all their forms, showing examples of and encouraging Jewish-Muslim engagement and bringing more nuanced perspectives of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the public sphere.
As part of our work in Jewish-Muslim relations, our website also includes specialised language sections of the website in Arabic and Hebrew [forthcoming] to enable us to reach as many people as possible.
