The Elijah Interfaith Institute is a multinational organization dedicated to fostering peace between the world's diverse faith communities through interfaith dialogue, education, research and dissemination. Our unique programming generates interfaith dialogue at the highest levels, bringing together world religious leaders and renowned scholars the world over. The activities of the Institute are carried out through several arms: the Elijah Academy, the Elijah Educational Network and the
Elijah School for the Study of Wisdom in World Religions. Its vast range of contacts and networks include a board of world religious leaders, an extensive network of engaged scholars, academic partnership with leading universities, and membership in UNESCO educational and administrative networks. All of these allow the
Elijah Interfaith Institute to carry out its work on a variety of levels and to offer a coordinated program of interreligious study, leading on the one hand to peace making and social change and on the other to the growth of individuals and their religious traditions.
