Welcome to The Mosaica Center for Religious Conflict Transformation in the Middle East
Mosaica’s Center for Religious Conflict Transformation is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 by Rabbi Michael Melchior and Prof. Elie Wiesel, two leading figures in the field of peace and reconciliation, joined by Jewish leaders in the areas of education, religion, culture and society, who are committed to reconciliation and inter-religious dialogue.
Mosaica’s vision is founded on the premise that effective dialogue between Jews and Muslims is only possible under conditions of mutual trust in the realm of religion. This derives from the understanding that today’s conflict in the Middle East is based not only upon territory but on culture, ethnicity and religion, which are at the roots of the conflict and the key to its resolution.
The Center is committed to providing an innovative approach to conflict transformation and resolution, based on universal and traditional Jewish values of mutual respect, reconciliation and justice.
