“For me it is an honour to be part of Reach Alliance – a global network that promotes intercultural and interreligious dialogue.

As a member of the National Commission for Religious Freedom, co-founder of the Abrahmaic Forum of Portugal and leader of the Jewish Community of Lisbon for two decades, I have always valued cultural and religious diversity, dialogue and mutual exchange, today more necessary than ever. Despite the attempts to divide and hierarchize human beings according to their cultural and religious origins, the humankind is one and it is this central idea of Reach Alliance that resonates with me.

Writer and researcher of Jewish subjects | Vice-President of the Israelite Community of Lisbon (CIL). Founder of the Portuguese Association of Jewish Studies. Director of the Lisbon Jewish Museum and member of the co-ordination of the European Expedition of Jewish Heritage, co-founding the Universes Association – Association for Interreligious Dialogue and the Abrahamic Forum of Portugal
