Arab, Jewish leaders awarded peace prize

Yehuda Stolov and Salah Alladin were recognized on Monday at the Notre Dame Center of Jerusalem, where they were presented with the eleventh annual Institute of International Education Victor J. Goldberg Prize for Peace in the Middle East.

The $10,000 prize is awarded each year to one Israeli and one Arab in recognition of their work toward coexistence.

For many, the idea that Stolov, an Israeli Jew, and Alladin, an Israeli Muslim, work closely together might come as a surprise, but their different backgrounds, as well as their relationships as colleagues and friends, have been a source for bringing others together through the Jerusalem-based Interfaith Encounter Association (IEA).
