Building a Jewish FUTURE from Dubai

is a project unfolding in Dubai.

It views our Jewish community in Dubai as a project which cannot (and should not) be owned by any segment of the Jewish people.

It expresses optimism about our shared Jewish future.

It focuses on the values that can be internalised in Dubai and transmitted from Dubai to the Jewish World.

There are two values that require particular emphasis:


Is a traditional value of moderation and inclusion in the UAE which has been developed into a contemporary principle of pluralism, governance, statecraft and diplomacy.

Future focus

An approach of assuming agency vis a vis the future that allows for visionary outcomes and optimism about the future that is so beautifully captured in the Museum of the Future and the Dubai Frame.

We invite visitors who attend our Shabbatot and who come away inspired to remain involved in our project. You are included in it and can contribute in multiple ways. Please contact Ross Kriel (+971 56 226 2117) to learn more.
