Since 2007, when the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding (FFEU) initiated the first Summit of North American Imams and Rabbis, the American Muslim and Jewish communities have been working hard to build ties of communication and cooperation. Hundreds of synagogues, mosques, and Muslim and Jewish organizations across the U.S. have taken part in twinning events, while grass-roots Jews and Muslims in a number of cities have formed Muslim-Jewish solidarity committees.
_Jews have donated to repair mosques that were defaced or burned. Muslims raised money to repair vandalized Jewish cemeteries. Rabbis and imams marched together against President Trump’s travel ban targeting majority Muslim countries._
Och om Foundation for Ethnic Understanding
Ordförande är rabbinen Marc Schneier.
Six months ago, FFEU’s New York City wide rally in the streets of Time Square witnessed thousands of Jewish participants chanting in unison “Today, I am a Muslim Too.”
Welcome To FFEU! A Non-Profit Organization Dedicated To Promoting Racial Harmony And Strengthening Inter-Group Relations.
We are dedicated to strengthening relations between ethnic communities. The Foundation was formed to promote understanding and cooperation between and among ethnic groups and to reduce the existing tensions among diverse racial and ethnic communities.
FFEU is the international address for Muslim-Jewish Relations and the national address for Black-Jewish relations. We are committed to the belief that direct dialogue between ethnic communities is the most effective path towards reconciliation.
Fighting Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and religious bigotry!
FFEU is proud to have become the international address in Muslim-Jewish Relations. From our grassroots, Season of Twinning and Muslim-Jewish solidarity committees throughout North America and Europe, to our executive-level advocacy we work both to promote conversation, reconciliation and cooperation amongst Muslim and Jewish communities worldwide as well as to band together to fight Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism.
Our signature program is the Season of Twinning. We have also held delegations and conferences of Muslim and Jewish Leadership including the National Summit of Imams and Rabbis, three Muslim-Jewish Conferences in Europe, the Delegation of European Muslim and Jewish Leaders to New York and Washington D.C. and the Delegation of Latin American Muslim and Jewish Leaders to D.C. In June 2013, the FFEU hosted the Delegation of Muslim and Jewish Leaders from the Southern Hemisphere. In December 2015, FFEU co-sponsored a We Refuse To Be Enemies press conference at the European Parliament in Brussels with the participation of the newly appointed European Commission Coordinators on combating antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred.
