The aim of The Institute for the Study of Relations between Jews, Christians, and Muslims is to promote research and cultural activity on the religious, cultural, social and economic aspects of discourse between the three monotheistic religions, from ancient times to the present.

The Institute’s activities and the research that takes place in it deal with these interfaith relations and contribute to understanding the intercultural, intersocietal and international dynamics, on the one hand, and to understanding the history of each culture itself on the other hand.

In the framework of its activities the Institute supports research groups, and carries out seminars, international workshops, conferences and lectures, and public meetings. The Center carries out a monthly meeting – the Diwan, on the subject of religions in the Middle East.
