The event will discuss various aspects of tolerance education and dialogue between people and religions as tools to create bridges and to fight extremism and prejudice, as well as racism, antisemitism and islamophobia. The event will feature an interfaith delegation of religious leaders from Israel representing the three monotheistic religions, as well as representatives of other minority religious groups.

On Tuesday, 16th of November, Israel’s National Cyber Security Authority will host a multinational Aviation Cyber Simulation event. In this table-top simulation event, leading executives from aviation organisations will collaborate on how to cope with a cyber crisis which will erupt in the aviation sector of "Cyberia" – a fantasy country, as a simulation.

November will also see performances from the Gil Ron Shema Ensemble known for combining original and traditional Arabic and Hebrew music on the 23rd and 24th of November and Anna RF, the electronic ethnic reggae band on the 28th and 29th of November, 2021.
