Who We Are

People of the Book was created in 2017 to educate Arab audiences about Jewish faith and culture. Through innovative animated videos, interviews with Arabic-speaking Jews, and one-on-one interfaith conversations, People of the Book hopes to foster mutual understanding between Jews and Muslims and contribute to grassroots peacebuilding.

Peacebuilding

Our Goals

Education

Peace in the Middle East is contingent upon better understanding of each other’s religious and cultural backgrounds. A better understanding of Judaism can soften the animosity many Arabs in the region feel towards Jews and Israelis, normalizing Jewish existence in the land. Similarly, a better understanding of Islam can help Jewish Israelis understand Muslim sensitivities concerning holy sites and other points of conflict.

Very little information exists in Arabic about Jews and Judaism.

The Arab world is in dire need of free, interesting and accessible educational tools for both schools and adult frameworks.

The same is true of Islam within the Jewish-Israeli context.
