It is increasingly vital that those of diverse faiths and backgrounds in our Miami-Dade Community come together, especially against the backdrop of geopolitical unrest, growing extremism and rising tensions in the Middle East. Deep concern about the ongoing violence and a vision for peace has inspired the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation to create an education and interfaith initiative entitled, “Faith in Each Other: An Israel Dialogue". Through thoughtful and balanced dialogue, we can improve the community’s understanding of the shared values of the U.S. and Israel.
