Aradin means "Garden of Eden" in Aramaic.
It is also the village in Iraq that gave us our name. Our logo shows it in Aramaic script.

Our motto is Veritas in corde, Latin for "Truth in the heart". The search for truth is the purpose of education, research and dialogue. Our logo shows Mary holding her son Jesus above her head, reaching out to the world.

Together our name and logo represent the confluence of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Starting from the Garden of Eden, they created the cultures that Aradin strives to preserve.
