Project on Tolerance and Intolerance in the Middle East
The Project, headed by Dr. Esther Webman, seeks to promote in-depth research on the multifaceted tensions between the Jewish and Arab worlds, with the purpose of advancing mutual acceptance. It organizes an annual events and sponsors lectures and conferences.
Through the project, the Roth Institute also monitors manifestations and expressions of antisemitism in the Arab world. Dr. Webman and research assistant Yarden Ben-Dor monitor a wide variety of Arabic newspapers and other media outlets on an ongoing basis. This material is entered into TAU's Database for the Study of Antisemitism and Racism and also included in the Annual Report on Antisemitism published in cooperation with TAU's Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry.
