UK: Rabbis/imams to join twinning program

Rabbis and imams from Great Britain will visit the United States to expand to Europe a program that pairs mosques and synagogues.

The Weekend of Twinning, an initiative started by Rabbi Marc Schneier and The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, last November paired 50 mosques and 50 synagogues representing more than 100,000 Jews and Muslims in communities across North America to speak out and call for an end to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.  

Europe's planned participation in the fall of 2009 Weekend of Twinning is a result of a meeting last week in London between Schneier and the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
