Panel Discussion: Confronting hate and prejudice: Jewish-Muslim relations

On Wednesday, April 25 from 7-9 p.m., Intercultural Dialogue Institute GTA and Canadian Jewish News cordially invite you to a panel discussion with the theme: "Confronting hate and prejudice: Jewish-Muslim relations in North America." The discussion will take place at the Hart House Debates Room, 7 Hart House Circle, Toronto, ON, M5S 3H3.

"We live in an era of rising bigotry against both Muslims and Jews. As such, there’s hardly been a time when the need for more solidarity, good faith, and bridge-building has been more immediately felt. While it is crucial to build trust, respect, and understanding in ways that honor the ideals of both communities, it is important not to be blind to the difficulties and tensions that have often divided these communities. The panel discussion aims to shed light on historcial and contemporary issues, and articulate a broad vision for the future of Muslim-Jewish relations in Canada--one based on mutual respect and good faith."
