Latin American rabbis, imams visit D.C.


A group of Latin American rabbis and imams met with U.S. government officials.

The group of seven rabbis and seven imams from seven nations met March 27 with officials in the White House and the State Department under the auspices of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, which has organized similar encounters for rabbis and imams from the United States and Europe.

The group is also meeting with Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Andre Carson (D-Ind.), who are Muslim, and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), who is Jewish.

“We can’t arrive at peace when Muslims and Jews do not trust the other,” Rabbi Marc Schneier, a co-founder of the foundation, said.
