From its early days, Har-El has striven for religious dialogue and understanding between different faith traditions including welcoming non-Jewish groups at our Shabbat and Festival services, and developing connections with Christian, Muslim, and Druze communities here in Israel and around the world.  

Here in Israel, our congregation is an active member of the Israeli branch of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), which has facilitated both congregational trips and meetings between clergy and lay-leaders of different faith communities.  From overseas, our congregation in recent years has developed warm relationships with the Lutheran Church of Schleswig-Flensburg in Germany, the Swedish Theological Institute, the GBI Church in Paumulang, Indonesia, and Christians for Israel in the Netherlands.
