Offer: Muslim-Jewish Conference: Apply by April 30th


The Muslim-Jewish Conference is a great opportunity to meet people from around the world who you can learn from and bond with.

You still have time to apply to this year's conference, to be held this year in Sarajevo from June 30th-July 5th. Conference registration, transportation, and associated costs to participation are free, but you will need to get yourself there.

Learn more:
Deadline: April 30th
Reptuation: Strong, I've heard lots of good things. Let me know if you have any questions about the conference. I'm not a participant, but I've done a lot of research on it as I had hoped to attend this year and have friends who have in the past.

"The 2013 Muslim Jewish Conference is scheduled to be held in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from June 30 through July 5, 2013.

There will be 6 committees to choose from, aiming at both an academic examination of Muslim-Jewish relations, as well as formulating and laying the grounds for practical projects to enhance Muslim-Jewish cooperation and tackle common problems. Furthermore, there will be guest speakers and social events, along with sessions open to all participants.

The application process requires each participant to fill out this online form. Please note that the form requires each applicant to upload a recent photograph, an updated version of their CV, an optional letter of recommendation from a professor/employer/NGO/NPO and a scanned copy of a valid passport.

Acceptances will take place on a rolling basis: the final date for submission is April 30, 2013. One hundred participants will be selected from amongst the applicants with equal proportions of Muslims and Jews including applicants of different backgrounds and affiliations.

As an official policy, the MJC does not require payment of any participation fee and will provide accommodation for the duration of the conference, from Sunday, June 30, to Saturday July 6. However, the MJC does not provide any financial support for travel to/from the conference, visa applications or single room requests. Room allocation is gender based: men and women will not be able to share rooms with each other. Kosher and Halal food will be available twice a day. For any other expenses the participants have to plan accordingly

If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to email us at Best of luck with your application and we hope to see you in Sarajevo!"

Muslim-Jewish Conference

Wonderful. Note that the deadline is very close now: next Tuesday, but I think the application essay can be done in one sitting if someone is determined. The main thing to get in order would be the recommendations, but if a few women are working together, they may be able to write each other's, if it's appropriate.

Here is something else that may interest you, although due tomorrow (!):

I'm collecting opportunities for peacemakers on my Pinterest account - which I've not yet launched as it is in the building stages - but you may be interested in taking a look:

Good luck to your ladies. Please do update me if anyone applies and/or goes.
