Scores of Muslim and Jewish New Yorkers came together at Brotherhood Synagogue in Manhattan on Sunday October 30 to prepare food for hungry seniors under the auspices of FFEU, Muslims Against Hunger, the NYC Muslim-Jewish Solidarity Committee and the Brotherhood Synagogue as part of the 2016 Season of Twinning.
Zamir Hassan, founder and director of Muslims Against Hunger, commented, “Millions of seniors are at risk of hunger, yet the depth of senior hunger in America is not widely understood because many seniors are too embarrassed to ask for help. That is why Muslims Against Hunger FFEU and our partners gathered on October 30 at Brotherhood Synagogue to prepare 10,000 healthy and nutritious meal packages for New York area seniors as part of our ongoing campaign to #EndSeniorHungerNow.”
According to FFEU Muslim-Jewish Program Director Walter Ruby, “We are gratified that Muslims and Jews came together on October 30 to package food for seniors in need. Spearheaded by our friend and longtime partner Zamir Hassan, it was an inspiring demonstration of Muslims and Jews joining together to express ouyr common moral imperative to help those in society who are most in need.”
