Multifaith Outreach

The mission of the AIFL Multifaith Cooperation initiative is to create an ongoing relationship with leaders and members of many faiths including Buddhists, Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Evangelicals, Hindus, Mainline Protestants, Muslims, Sikhs and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, among others.

Led by Rabbi Eric J. Greenberg, an internationally recognized interfaith expert and the League’s Director of Multifaith Cooperation, the goal is to inform and educate members of all religions and brainstorm on developing practical humanitarian actions that can be taken together to benefit society in America and Israel.

One of our core projects is the Multifaith Outreach Webinar series which brings together noted faith and community leaders and Israeli representatives to explore relevant issues of interest of cooperation.

The series is designed to create a safe environment for continued engagement and dialogue with AIFL, Israel and the diverse faith communities, increasing and enhancing exposure to, and level of understanding of, the State of Israel, and all it is doing to promote mutifaith dialogue, education, and respect.

The Multifaith Cooperation initiative also seeks to educate and inform about the realities facing Israel, which includes exploring faith based ideological and theological teachings about Israel and the Jewish people, and how such dialogue can help improve understanding modern Israel.

Developing these important long-term relationships requires building trust and credibility with new partners, and we take great care ensuring that all partner perspectives are considered. The program will be informative in nature, for purpose of building bridges, and will have no proselytization aspect to it.

The America Israel Friendship League (AIFL) is chartered with strengthening the relationship between the people of the United States and of Israel by improving perceptions about Israel as it pertains to faith-based communities and their religious teachings, theology and traditions.
