2nd Annual Weekend of Twinningsm
Mosques and Synagogues Across
North America and Europe
November 13 - 15, 2009
This weekend, November 13 -15, marks the beginning
of the 2nd annual Weekend of Twinningsm
of mosques and synagogues across North America and
Europe. We are proud to announce that 100 mosques
and 100 synagogues from across North America and
Europe will be participating.
Once again, The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding
is organizing this groundbreaking effort, which is
endorsed by the Islamic Society of North America,
the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the World Jewish
Congress and the Canadian Association of Jews and
"For generations, there have been a series of
misunderstandings by Jews and Muslims on what the
other religious community believes and practices,"
said Rabbi Marc Schneier, president of The
Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and co-organizer
of the Weekend of Twinningsm.
"These misperceptions and other societal and
political factors have unfortunately led to tensions
between our two communities. From New York to
California, from Canada to Paris, Russia and
everywhere in between, Muslims, Jews, imams and
rabbis will lead discussions, workgroups and panels
on ways to confront hate in our communities."
