We hope that you and yours are keeping safe and well in these difficult times. 

Here at the Woolf Institute, our week begins with our team meeting and 15-20 smiling faces, depending on how many of our graduate and Erasmus students can join us, dialing in from around the world reporting on their work.  Some highlights are that Sam, in Montreal, is working with Tara and Emma, in Cambridge, guiding 87 students from 19 countries through our Religion Is…. online course.  The course has been offered free of charge for the first time in response to the lockdown conditions that many people are experiencing, to bring them together with participants around the world to learn more about religion and how it affects our lives, interactions and society today.

Alissa, in Israel, is collaborating with Miriam in the UK to establish the Woolf online research seminars (details on the latest webinars and how to sign up are on our events page).  How have people of different faiths marked Easter, Passover and Ramadan this year in light of international shutdowns and social distancing? What happens to gender segregation in the online mosque or synagogue where we are all tiles in a gallery of faces? Helen and John are keeping donors and supporters informed and continue to fundraise where possible for current and future initiatives. Ed is working with David, Tara and Claire to produce Naked Reflections podcasts, special blogs and the COVID-19 Chronicles.

The Woolf Institute continues in its mission to foster tolerance and greater understanding between people of different beliefs to build a stronger society.  You can be part of that mission – donate now to support Woolf Institute’s research, education and outreach.

You can decide exactly which part of the Institute’s work you wish to support and how much and how often you want to give. Your donation will go directly towards improving relations between religion and society through research and education. Your gift is hugely valuable to us, which is why we will keep you informed and involved with our work, sending you updates and inviting you to events.

Regular donations allow us to plan ahead, making your contribution to our work more effective. The collective power of regular donations is impressive: a gift of £25 a month, adds up to £300, plus £75 Gift Aid. This means, in five years, such a monthly donation has accumulated to £1,875.

Our researchers, staff and students will appreciate you putting thought into making a donation and be very grateful for every gift you make.
