Event Details

The Jewish Muslim Community Building Initiative (JMCBI) and Anshe Sholom B’nai Israel Congregation invite Muslim and Jewish community members to Iftar in the Synagogue 2010 - Know Thy Neighbor.

“Iftar in the Synagogue” is a unique interfaith gathering during the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan and the Jewish month of Elul.

The Torah commands us to “love thy neighbor,” and the Quran reminds us that “We created you…and made you into ...nations and tribes, that ye may know each other” Surah Hujurat 49:13.
Throughout the night we will be reflecting on the theme, “Know Thy Neighbor.”
