Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

This January, Bridges: Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue at NYU will join the Jewish Disaster Response Corps (JDRC) for an interfaith service trip to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to do recovery work from tornadoes last spring. The JDRC serves regions as they recover from natural disaster. Apply now!

This trip will be a unique opportunity for members of NYU’s Muslim and Jewish communities to develop deep and meaningful relationships with each other, as well as participate in the rebuilding of homes destroyed by recent tornadoes. Additionally, students will engage with a multitude of Muslim and Jewish texts in an effort to provide all participants with a better understanding of the religious history and challenges facing both communities.

The Bridges trip is made possible with the generous support of the Five Together Foundation and Repair the World in conjunction with the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU, the Islamic Center at NYU and the 'Of Many' Institute for Multifaith Leadership at NYU.
