Two FODIP Board Members Honoured
We are delighted that two of our Board members, Rabbi Warren Elf and Superintendent Umer Khan, were awarded MBE’s in the New Year’s Honours List. Rabbi Elf received his honour for promoting inter-faith dialogue and community cohesion. Supt Khan received his for his work to repair community relations after the 2001 Oldham riots. Both were key figures in the tireless work required following the Manchester Arena attack and continue to go above and beyond the call of duty to build good and positive relations, especially in difficult circumstances. We are proud to have their support for the work of FODIP.
FODIP is a registered charity set up in 2008 to enable positive and sensitive conversations in the UK between Jews, Christians and Muslims on the Israeli/Palestinian situation. FODIP is run, governed and supported by Jews, Christians and Muslims. It takes no political position, other than a concern for the rights and well-being of all the people of the region. We have developed methodologies for dealing with this difficult topic across communal borders and run workshops and activities to promote positive dialogue.
