London Women’s Twinning event

(submitted by Rabbi Jackie Tabickof North West Surrey Synagogue and Irit Burkeman, MA. head of Student Services at Leo Baeck College)

Thanks to the help of the Al-Nisa society, the Leo Baeck College and the hospitality provided by North West Surrey Synagogue in Weybridge, a group of Muslim and Jewish women met together for tea and discussion as part of Mitzvah Day, Interfaith Week and the world wide Muslim-Jewish twinning programme spearheaded by the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.. Participants were asked to bring a text from their own tradition of women that had inspired them. The range was enormous, from Deborah, the prophetess to Aisha, one of the wives of the Prophet, peace be upon him.
