Council of Religious Institutions of the Holy Land

The Council of Religious Institutions of the Holy Land is an independent organization of Palestinian and Israeli religious leaders founded in late 2007 with the objective of helping to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through dialogue. Comprised of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian members, the council promotes an atmosphere of mutual respect and tolerance through vigilance against inflammatory and hateful speech and encourages the Government of Israel and the Palestinian National Authority to continue working towards a resolution of the ongoing conflict. Currently initiatives include a media monitoring project, dialogue and training program for young religious leaders, and a comprehensive joint review of Israeli and Palestinian school textbooks. The organization has also developed a universal code of conduct on holy sites and registry of attacks on holy sites.
