Muslim-Jewish students twinning event in Wellington, New Zealand

Another successful #FFEUSOT Twinning event in New Zealand: FFEU thanks Paul Morris, Professor of Religious Studies at Victoria University of Wellington for gathering Muslim-Jewish Students on November 18, 2018 in Wellington. Many students in attendance reported that it was  their first explicit meeting with a Muslim or a Jew. Students  (of medicine; law; international relations; biochemistry; engineering; architecture; and business)  gave excellent feedback about the workshop. They had an open discussions including Gaza, Zionism, the Shoah, and experiences, positive and negative, as religious minorities in New Zealand, a largely “secular” country. Both groups of students hope to meet again. #SeasonofTwinning2018
