Tough Options

FODIP is experienced in helping groups and individuals explore how we feel about the Holy Land, our differing fears and our shared hopes. We offer training to those wanting or needing to facilitate such dialogue. Contact us for further details.

We are also happy to advise or provide information on dialogue or travel for interfaith groups or individuals free of charge.

Youth Seminar August 2014

This will provide an opportunity for young Jews, Christians, Muslims and anyone with an interest in the Middle East to meet with French counterparts. The week’s seminar in Somerset will look at issues of identity, attitudes to the Middle East and conflict resolution. This is open to anyone aged between 16 and 23. Please contact us to register your interest!

All of Us

What does it mean to be a British citizen? How can we feel at home in a society whose values, culture and even political decisions may raise questions for us? Our recently concluded ‘All of Us’ project looked at the Kulanana project devised by the Israeli citizenship organisation Merchavim; it asked how young people in the UK can similarly consider citizenship and difference and provide models for other young people to do the same.

Facilitation Training

We are happy to provide training in our dialogue facilitation methods on Israel/Palestine.
