    Abstract

    Contact intervention programs are being used as a main vehicle to enhance positive relationships between members of multicultural societies all over the world. Often, such programs are part of the school curriculum, and students first interact with members of other faiths as part of their studies. The proposed paper will be based on empirical quantitative and qualitative results of interactions between Israeli Jewish and Arab high-school students, and would have two aims: To illustrate the role that religious culture might play in enhancing dialog between conflict groups, and the place of religion-based intervention programs in enhancing Jewish-Arab relationships in Israel.
