Abraham Institute

Beit Shalom is the proud sponsor of the Abraham Institute, an educational organization which promotes interfaith and intercultural dialogue and understanding. It has its own Reference Group and website at

The Abraham Institute has the following goals:

1. To develop an ongoing dialogue among religious leaders and congregants of the World Religions, which encourages them to work together to establish greater bonds of trust and respect by acknowledging our common humanity and a common goal to build a more peaceful and tolerant world.

2. To educate the greater community about the precepts and practices of these world religions through courses for the general public, school programmes, exhibitions and research.

3. To encourage greater understanding and tolerance of religious and ethnic minorities.
