Our Mission

Our Mission is to foster better relations between Arabs and Jews in Canada.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a Canada inspired by the relations between its Arabs and Jews.

Our Core Values and Beliefs

Our values include respect, dignity, tolerance and diversity.

We support any and all steps that result in Arabs and Jews living peacefully in the Middle East.

We believe that the ultimate solution to the Arab Israeli conflict is a sovereign, contiguous, democratic Palestinian state living side by side with a sovereign, secure, democratic Jewish state.

We believe that no religion has a monopoly on the truth and we abhor any group using religion to justify the use of violence.

We believe that citizens of every country should have the right to choose a government accountable to them and that they should not be subject to unreasonable government limitations on their human and civil rights.

We believe that while Canadian Arabs and Jews may disagree from time to time over events in the Middle East, they can and should work together to resolve those differences peacefully.

We believe that one of the ways to build trust between Arabs and Jews is to meet on a regular basis to educate each other and to discuss subjects of mutual interest.

We believe that Canadians want Arabs and Jews to embrace these values and beliefs and, in particular, they want to see Canadian Arabs and Jews reject groups that use religion to justify the use of violence.
