NYC Weekend of Twinning with Bridges: Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue

NYC Weekend of Twinning with Bridges: Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue 
Sunday, November 17, 2013 - 2:30pm

Bronfman Center, JCC Manhattan

Bridges: Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue @ NYU, is partnering with The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding on New York's annual "Muslim and Jewish Students and Young Professionals Weekend of Twinning" for a day of community service. You can come for part of the day, or all of it! Register here! This year, the Bronfman Center at NYU has the privilege of hosting the first half of the day's program on November 17th from 1-4 pm. We'll prepare and deliver food to the hungry in Tompkins Square Park. The second half of the day will take place at the JCC in Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Avenue) from 6:30-8:30 with films on the theme of Muslims and Jews sticking up for the Other. Check out more information here! All are welcome to join for all or part of the day.

Muslims and Jews Standing Up for the Other is the theme of this year’s Weekend of Twinning. The idea is that while dialogue and working together to help those in need are essential steps in building the relationship between our two communities, the critical next step is when Muslims and Jews vow to be there for the Other and to stand together against Islamophobia, anti-Semisitm and other forms of bigotry.
