Weekend of Twinning - Muslims and Jews - "Standing Up for the Other"

Next month, in cities around the world, peacemakers will come together, break bread and discuss ways of improving the world as part of the Weekend of Twinning, which officially takes place November 15-17th

There is a widely accepted but erroneous belief that Muslims and Jews are enemies and will always remain so. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

For the past six years The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding has not only challenged this narrative, but has facilitated a global dialogue between Muslims and Jews that is taking place on all six populated continents.

A flashback to last year and Muslim-Jewish cooperation

Part of this Muslim-Jewish dialogue is an annual Weekend of Twinning which encourages joint Muslim and Jewish programming on the grassroots level in every community across the world where Muslims and Jews reside.

Efforts reveal that actual harmony exists between these two faiths and peoples and the Unity Productions Foundation, has released the video (above) which documents this global Muslim Jewish coalition that is vowing to stand up for one another by combating Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and all forms of hatred.
