The Diversity Tour went to Serbia

The Diversity Tour is a training programme that travels to Jewish communities around Europe to identify needs and activities for improving local intercultural relations.Our latest workshop in Serbia attracted 26 participants and was organized by CEJI in partnership with Haver Informal Jewish Educational Public Benefit Foundation Budapest and the new established Haver Serbia. The two-day program successfully engaged participants on issues related to diversity and intercultural relations. With the support of the Dutch Jewish Humanitarian Fund, this partnership of Jewish European organizations put together a program to engage more and more people in education, intercultural dialogue, combating prejudice and discrimination and in the fight against antisemitism and xenophobia. A wonderful experience and a special thanks to the highly-motivated participants that made the workshop a success.

Diversity Tour Hungary - photo album now live!

Finally pictures from the Diversity Tour Hungary are now on-line!

The 20th of November CEJI - A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe organized the second "stop" of the Diversity Tour in Budapest.

The thematic seminar, realized in partnership with the Haver Informal Jewish Educational Public Benefit Foundation, Marom Club Association and the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities, was focused on topics related to Judaism, gender and sexuality with a specific attention to the role of Jewish Communities in reconciling inner diversities.

The seminar, shaped in conformity with CEJI's diversity approach, followed an exact  sequence of pedagogical concepts: building the foundation, identity, cultural awareness, examining prejudices and discrimination, confronting prejudices and discrimination, social action, closing and evaluation.

A various group took part in the interactive workshop, bringing different ideas and inputs to the discussion ended up in the braing storming activity, during which participants produced an high quality discourse about the most productive ways to address the diversity issues in Hungarian Jewish communities.

The informal atmosphere and the non-formal education approach enabled the participants to share freely about the opportunities as well as the frustrations they encounter in the Jewish Community.

The Diversity Tour Blog is ready!

The Diversity Tour is also on-line! 

The blog will represent an ideal platform to meet again for those who have arleady taken part in one of the Diversity Tour workshop but also for those who might want just to share experiences and ideas and maybe bring a workshop in her/his community!!

Diversity and intergroup relations are important for Jewish communities today within a context of immigration and mobility, of Jews and non-Jews, changing the face of the neighborhoods where we live and work.

This diversity adds richness to our lives and our communities, but it can be challenging too: misunderstandings arise and tensions can increase within and outside Jewish communities. 

The Diversity Tour brings to your community a toolset for dealing with diversity in a proactive way.
