ELES TAKES Initiative

True to its namesake, the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk is committed to dialogue – be it between the diverse streams of Judaism or between the various religious, cultural and political communities within our modern society. Our Dialogue/Perspectives carries this very commitment in the title. We also see art as a form of communication and confrontation – between traditions, societies, identities. Our DAGESH art programme reflects this thinking. Interdisciplinary and international thinking is the concentration of the Hillel Germany programme, run jointly by ELES and  Hillel International.

Dagesh. Jüdische Kunst im Kontext

In 2016, the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk founded DAGESH. KunstLAB: a programme for the promotion of ELES scholarship holders that are artists. It not only offers the ELES artists a unique network, but also their own seminars and retreats. In addition, international cooperation and exhibitions increase the visibility of their work. With the help of renowned Jewish artists and art scholars, DAGESH acts to support and encourage Jewish artists..

Dialogue/Perspectives is a programme for the establishment of innovative forms of interreligious and ideological dialogue. With Dialogue/Perspectives we enter into dialogue with scholarship holders of different religious and ideological identities as well as with renowned scientists and discourse-defining experts on one of the most important topics of our time: the role of religions and worldviews for the individual and for society. The programme is aimed at scholarship holders of all 13 federally funded scholarship funds – funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research – who will be trained as future leaders in the field of interreligious dialogue..

Jewish-Muslim think tank by Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk and Avicenna-Studienwerk

The Jewish Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk and the Muslim Avicenna-Studienwerk initiated a new platform for Muslim-Jewish dialogue in Berlin at the beginning of 2019 with the Jewish-Muslim think tank Karov-Qareeb. Karov-Qareeb is initially aimed at scholarship holders of both study institutions and would like to intensify the exchange between Berlin scholarship holders of both scholarship institutions for gifted students. Karov-Qareeb is part of the ELES programme Dialogue/Perspective. Since 2015, Karov-Qareeb has been exploring innovative paths in interreligious dialogue and testing them with scholarship holders from all works.

Nie wieder!? Gemeinsam gegen Antisemitismus & für eine plurale Gesellschaft

The action programme “Nie wieder!? Gemeinsam gegen Antisemitismus & für eine plurale Gesellschaft” supports the shared fight against anti-Semitism and for an open and pluralistic society. In pursuit of this goal, ELES and its cooperation partners will be carrying out ten, multi-day events across the country.

The seminar makes possible a grounded, academic approach to grappling with anti-Semitism. It offers a safe space for sensitivity training and empowerment. Interested scholarship holders will be supported in learning to recognise anti-Semitism, to openly address it, and to become involved in building a society without exclusion and social marginalization. Expert inputs, workshops, and reflection rounds carried out by recognized experts, local actors, and our cooperation partners will qualify the participants to act as anti-Semitism-critical multipliers in their communities and surroundings.
