Jewish Islamic Dialogue Society

Website: http://www.jids.org/new/

"Beginning in February of 2009, JIDS has been conducting monthly dialogues that bring together dozens of Jews and Muslims for friendly, yet frank, encounters. We encourage participants to speak their minds, but to do so respectfully. We believe that if a participants cannot find a way to make a point with love in their hearts, it is better saved for another day."

If Not Now

"We are Jews who live our Judaism in diverse ways. Our tradition compels us to a particular commitment, born of shared texts and a shared history, to the notion that every human being is valuable, and that all people deserve freedom and the opportunity to forge their own future. Our own history of oppression has taught us that our freedom cannot be achieved absent the freedom of our neighbors."

Conjure! is curated from a positive desire to integrate healing and love-work, as we must do for ourselves, communities, and the world. The splitting apart of what we do and how we are by industries is no different from the same harm that we create in our spirits, bodies, relationships, and lands when we coerce separation.
