01: Interfaith dialogue for young adults (those in their 20s and 30s) is the special concern of the Abrahamic Youth Forum, a new international organization based in Israel.
The project was launched by an international team of volunteers from all religious and political perspectives within mainstream Islam, Judaism and Christianity. The forum believes that dialogue is most necessary where it is most difficult. Its first meetings have drawn “not just `peace people,’ but also straight-down-the line Islamists, hard-line orthodox Israelis, opponents of the current peace process, and others who don’t believe in any peace process.”
