As we celebrate the end of Ramadan and Eid-al-Fitr, the Muslim-Jewish Solidarity Committee asks for your zakat-al-fitr and tzedakah donation to launch our "Love Your Neighbor" program! After our flagship Iftar-in-a-Synagogue, we come together as Muslims, Jews, and allies to practice what we preach - standing together against hate, oppression, trauma. Our Love Your Neighbor program will create monthly Muslim-Jewish service projects in partnership with underserved neighborhoods.

New York has the highest level of hate crimes in the U.S., according to the Huffington Post. Hateful attacks doubled during the presidential election year of 2016, and continue at this rate. Anti-Semitic & Anti-Muslim incidents hit multi-year highs, over half of all hate crimes. In addition, systemic violence is pervasive, with over 15,000 killed by guns annually. The most frequent targets for hateful violence in 2017 were Muslim, Jewish, Black, and LGBTQ communities.


MJSC's Iftar-in-a-Synagogue brought together Muslims, Jews, and allies to stand against violence. Our "Love Your Neighbor" program mobilizes us for direct social action to learn, advocate, and volunteer with trusted local organizations in Muslim, Jewish immigrant, refugee, and high-poverty communities targeted by violence, and oppression. Examples include immigrant & refugee protection, literacy, civic cultural events, food and supply drives, builds, clean-ups, etc!

Long-Term Impact

As Muslim and Jews, we share values of justice and charity. We also share current and past experiences being feared, hated, marginalized, attacked, and destroyed. Our annual Iftar-in-Synagogue and Love Your Neighbor program address urgent social issues such as racism and xenophobia, gun and domestic violence, poverty and homelessness, war. Because we focus on both individual & communal solidarity, our monthly projects will aim to recognize, meet needs, protect, uplift, and heal our communities.
