Muslim-Jewish Relations Initiative

The Muslim-Jewish Relations Initiative explores the historical, cultural, sociopolitical, economic and geographic linkages that exist between Jews and Muslims. The initiative fosters interdisciplinary scholarship in these areas, supporting teaching and research activities that examine and create new avenues of engagement among Jews and Muslims. The initiative also sponsors thought provoking discussions and artistic events that highlight the historical and cultural intersections between Muslims and Jews and how these intersections can serve as point of departure for meaningful dialogue and the celebration of shared human values.
