FFL appears in leading Jewish News

FFL helped bring together members of the Jewish and Muslim communities to construct a Sukkah to celebrate Jewish festival of Sukkot in various locations. This great interfaith initiative has not gone unnoticed and has appeared in a leading Jewish media outlet called the Jewish News.

Rabbi Natan of Faith Forum had this to say about the initiative:

“Until the mosque built this shelter of welcome, many members of my community were wary of mosques and steered cleared of them, but the Sukkah is a big embrace, a huge welcome sign. It has made us Jews sit up and take notice. How often can you eat a kosher bagel in a Sukkah at a Mosque and learn from wise rabbis and imams both?”

This media attention sheds a positive light on interfaith interaction and it is hoped that it can be an example of interfaith meetings that can inspire faith institutes to reach out to other faiths and communities to have a constructive dialogue.
