The Mount Zion Foundation has its seat at the Institute for Jewish-Christian Research (IJCF) at the University of Lucerne in Switzerland and grants every other year close to October 28 the Mount Zion Award. In 1986 the Mount Zion Foundation was created by the German Reverend Wilhelm Salberg (1925–1996), son of a Jewish father and a Christian mother. Every other year, this foundation grants the Mount Zion Award to persons of Jewish, Muslim or Christian faith, who have significantly contributed to the Jewish-Christian dialogue or to the understanding of the three Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in Israel.
The presidents of the foundation, Prof. Dr. Verena Lenzen, director of the Institute for Jewish-Christian Research at the University of Lucerne, and the abbot of the Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem, Bernhard Maria Alter OSB, present the Mount Zion Award always at the end of October or at the beginning of November, in remembrance of the Declaration on the Relation of the Catholic Church with Non-Christian Religions Nostra aetate of October 28, 1965.
