Who We Are

People of the Book is an online initiative created by Jerusalem journalist and
researcher Elhanan Miller. Its goal is to introduce basic concepts in Jewish faith to
Muslim audiences, and vice versa. Through a series of innovative animated videos 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.
