We are a grassroots community where Jews, Muslims, and all are welcome. We build relationships to stand against hate through shared values and social action.

Values

We believe what we share is more powerful than what divides us:

Peace שָׁלוֹם سلام

We envision a city, nation, and world where no one is feared, marginalized, hated, attacked, and killed because of who they are.

We recognize, challenge, and respond to prejudice, bigotry, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, discrimination, and violence.

We love our neighbors by preventing and responding to hateful incitement, interpersonal and institutional violence.

Learning علم‎‎ יֶדַע

We encourage curiosity, respect, and education for communal transformation.

We commit to building relationships and mobilizing voices to seek knowledge.

We reflect on our identities by celebrating and teaching Muslim and Jewish traditions.

Giving Back زكاة‎‎ צדקה

We leverage our skills and talents through unique events.

We build on the momentum of social justice and civil rights movements.

We embrace freedom, justice, and dignity for all, including the most disadvantaged.

What We Do

We organize monthly events, ongoing programs, and annual celebrations to serve as a model for interfaith collaboration and solidarity.
