At a time of increased Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, thousands of Muslims and Jews came together in Detroit and in cities around the world during the 6th Annual International Weekend of Twinning, November 15-17, to pledge to be there for each other if either community is victimized by hate crimes or incitement.
This year, there are expected to be more than 130 twinning events involving Muslims and Jews in more than 30 countries on all six inhabited continents.
The Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue and the Muslim Center of Detroit participated in the International Weekend of Twinning, by hosting a social action program to help feed the hungry in southeast Michigan. The event was held on Sunday, Nov. 16 at the Muslim Center of Detroit. Together Muslims, Christians and Jews served food to the needy, socialized and viewed a film about Muslim and Jewish cooperation.
