We are a grassroots community where Jews, Muslims, and all are welcome. We build relationships to stand against hate through shared values and social action.
What we share is more powerful than what divides us:
We envision a city, country, and world where no one is feared, marginalized, hated, attacked, and killed because of who they are.
We challenge prejudice, bigotry, racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, discrimination, and oppression.
We stand in solidarity with our neighbors by speaking out against hateful incitement, interpersonal and institutional violence.
We encourage curiosity and education for transformation.
We reflect on our identities by celebrating Muslim and Jewish traditions.
We commit to building respectful relationships to gain knowledge.
We mobilize our community to make an impact through service and volunteering.
We build on the momentum of social justice and civil rights movements.
We believe in freedom, justice, and dignity for all, including the most disadvantaged.
We welcome all. Our model can and should be replicated in other cities – please get in touch if you’d like advice on starting your own solidarity committee, or if you would like to join the steering committee.
The NYC Muslim-Jewish Solidarity Committee is an independent, non-profit community-based organization. All of our work is based on our mission and values – we are not affiliated with any political or religious institution. Our events and programs are always open to all identities inclusive of faith, culture, ethnicity, race, politics, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, etc.
