In his TEDxJaffa talk, Dr. Yehuda Stolov presents the belief that peace in the Middle East is really quite simple -- if we focus on our commonalities of our faith, rather than that which separates us. Yehuda is the executive director of the Interfaith Encounter Association, an organization that works to establish peaceful inter-communal relations in the Holy Land through active interfaith dialogue. Dr. Stolov has lectured on the role of religious dialogue in peace-building throughout the world, including Jordan, Indonesia, Turkey, South Korea, North America and Europe. In 2006, he was awarded the Immortal Chaplains Foundation Prize for Humanity, which honors those who "risked all to protect others of a different faith or ethnic origin." Among other activities, Dr. Stolov was a member of the steering committee for the United Nations Decade of Interreligious Dialogue and Cooperation for Peace. He holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics and a Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
