Rabbi Marc Schneier was among those who briefed White House staff ahead of September 11 commemorations.

Schneier, as the vice president of the World Jewish Congress and a co-founder of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, was part of a group briefing staff on Tuesday ahead of the 10-year anniversary of the al-Qaeda terrorist attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington that killed nearly 3,000 people.

“Rabbi Schneier discussed how Americans have united since 2001 to rebuild and further cooperation and understanding between communities,” said a statement from the foundation.

Schneier has been especially active in recent years in forging Muslim-Jewish ties.

Others addressing the briefing included Janet Napolitano, the Homeland Security secretary, and leaders from the Muslim community and from the community of families of victims of the attack.
