Founder
Tenure Unconfirmed

The Maimonides Foundation is an interfaith charity that fosters understanding and co-operation between Jews, Christians, and Muslim through cultural and academic programmes. The Foundation is committed to creating opportunities where the three communities can meet and share their commonalities and discuss their differences. Since 1995 we have worked to enhance and create dialogue, as we believe dialogue is the only positive means of living in harmony in a multi-religious and multi-cultural society. Based on a historical outlook of when Jews, Christians, and Muslims lived in harmony we aim at recreating this peace and cooperation to a level that will be emulated abroad. The Foundation involves prominent leaders and individual members of the three communities in the hope of furthering a peaceful and meaningful co-existence for the Children of Abraham.
