Fighting anti-Semitism and Promoting Intercultural Dialogue Committee

The committee reviews proposals for groundbreaking projects aiming to fight anti-Semitism in all its forms and to promote intercultural dialogue. Intolerance is rooted in ignorance. That is why the committee pays special attention to educational initiatives that promote dialogue and mutual understanding. The Foundation funds all kinds of projects (meetings, books, films, plays, etc.), but its priority is to stem the almost unhindered spread of anti-Semitic hate speech on the Internet and social networks.

The committee also funds projects to research and monitor anti-Semitism in an effort to better understand the phenomenon and its most recent manifestations.
