“Coexistence in the Middle East” is an initiative that promotes coexistence by training future leaders through academic and experiential seminars in Israel, which allow first hand contact with different cultures.
Since the beginning of the program in 2006, undergraduate and graduate students from 31 universities in America and Europe have participated in the program and we are constantly trying to reach out to new institutions.
These programs are planned by a coordinating committee and conducted by The International Institute of Leadership and the Rothberg International School at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in collaboration with The Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel.
