Some 125 meetings set to take place at 250 Jewish and Muslim institutions in 26 countries.
Thousands of Jews and Muslims across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa will participate in joint Jewish-Muslim events this weekend, as part of the “Weekend of Twinning” project.
The project began four years ago with a modest and limited scope at interreligious events that took place in synagogues and mosques in a few American cities.
