Liberal Judaism welcomes BoD/MCB joint statement

28th August 2014

The conflict in the Middle East creates a real challenge for the Jewish and Muslim communities in the UK.   We can choose to let it define our relationship or we can build our own relationship founded on the many values and experiences we share in common. Liberal Judaism chooses the latter way: we encourage our synagogues to reach out to their Muslim neighbours whenever they can and to create a framework in which we can get to know one another both as communities and individuals. The joint statement issued today by the Board of Deputies and the Muslim Council of Britain is a bold and constructive step and should be welcomed by all those with an interest in strengthening community cohesion in the UK.
