The Dialogue Project promotes encounters among new immigrants, and long time residents of diverse faiths and ethnicities, and with Palestinian, Israeli, Jewish and Muslim New Yorkers. We create face to face engagement where difficult subjects are explored and our personal narratives are shared. We learn how to listen actively and reflect each other’s story.
