The Jewish Community took part in the Interreligious Dialogue Project since it began in January 2011. The project is conducted by Konrad Adenaur Stiftung and the Societas Civilis Institute for Democracy. It was financed by the European Union via the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) with co-financing from the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung. The five religious communities specified in the Constitution participated in the project: Macedonian Orthodox Church, Islamic Religious Community, Catholic Church, United Methodist Church and Jewish Community.
The aim of the project is to raise awareness of religious tolerance and acceptance of different religious denominations among the population of Macedonia, as well as to contribute to the promotion of freedom of expression, interreligious dialogue and religious pluralism.
In the course of October and November a few groups of students visited the Community and Beth Yaakov synagogue where they became acquainted with the Community, the history of the Jews in Macedonia and the basic concepts of Judaism.
