European Conference on Jewish-Muslim Dialogue

The only place where I read about the “European Conference on Jewish-Muslim Dialogue” held in Brussels last week was Ekklesia, a Christian News service.

[The event] welcomed seventy Jews and Muslims from Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, the UK and France who are involved in or interested in dialogue at a community level. Organisations represented included the European Muslim Network, the International Council of Jewish Women (ICJW) and Islamic Relief.

The article provides a brief interview of the event, including the organizations involved, the names of the speakers and their topics.
As CEJI Director Robin Sclafani explained, Jewish-Muslim dialogue initiatives are valuable not only for creating respect and understanding between communities but also as “a source of inspiration for intercultural relations as a whole and a demonstration of solidarity in the fight against all forms of racism”.
