We are, respectively, an imam and an Orthodox rabbi. Last month, our two congregations initiated a series of joint gatherings to enable our people to get to know one another, and study our respective sacred texts together. We were motivated simply by the recognition that the histories and the destinies of our peoples are inextricably intertwined, and that in a vacuum of genuine personal knowledge and understanding of one another, terrible, regrettable things can occur. Ignorance is the oxygen that feeds suspicion, mistrust, and enmity, and relationship is the antidote.
