Interfaith Supper- Eid al-Adha and Rosh Hashana

Too often, we congregate solely with those who look like us, and believe the same things as us. Lacking relationships across lines of difference, we are led to believe our worst stereotypes.

At its most extreme, the hateful rhetoric that results leads to hateful acts, whether on a commuter train in Portland, or a mosque in Minnesota, or a college town in Virginia. In the first three months of the year, Anti-Semitic incidents in the US were up by 86%, while Anti-Muslim hate crimes rose by 91% in the first half of 2017.

Enough. The NYC Muslim Jewish Solidarity Committee, together with The People’s Supper, are inviting Jews, Muslims, Christians, secularists, atheists, and everyone in between to sit down for a chance to go beneath the headlines and understanding the stories of real struggles and real fears and real hopes and real dreams that have shaped who we are.
