Showing Support to Muslims Neighbors

by Rabbi Jill Maderer

In the face of the current atmosphere of fear and Islamophobia, many of us seek ways to demonstrate to Muslim neighbors that we are their allies and know the faith that they practice is not the extremism we see in the terrorists.

As a start, I have been touched by the writings of Sophia Ali-Kahn. She provides guidance in this short article; I am interested to know how you think Rodeph Shalom can play a positive role.

    Rabbi Maderer,

    Have you considered asking an Iman to speak at either a Sunday morning seminar or a Lunch and Learn? Perhaps you can recommend a short, informative and accurate book on the subject.

    Great idea. I am starting with the possibility of bringing a mini-course. Stay tuned…
