The Tolerance Coalition
The Jerusalem Tolerance Coalition is an association of about 70 organizations and institutions that work to promote tolerance and coexistence in Jerusalem. The goal of the coalition, which operates under the auspices of the Jerusalem Foundation, is to strengthen the organizations that are members of it and to strengthen their activities and influence in the city in order to maintain a healthy urban fabric.
In addition, the coalition strives to spread and assimilate tolerant perceptions that encourage the existence of a common life among the Jerusalem public in general and among the decision-makers in the city in particular. The coalition member organizations operate in a wide variety of arenas, addressing the variety of rifts and tensions that exist in Jerusalem, including the ultra-Orthodox-secular rift, Jewish-Arab relations, attitudes toward the LGBT community, and more.
