Event description

Description

Intercultural Dialogue Institute GTA and Canadian Jewish News cordially invites you to a panel discussion with the theme:

"Confronting Hate and Prejudice: Jewish-Muslim Relations in North America"

We live in an era of rising bigotry against both Muslims and Jews. As such, there's hardly been a time when the need for more solidarity, good faith, and bridge-building has been more immediately felt. While it is crucial to build trust, respect, and understanding in ways that honor the ideals of both communities, it is important not to be blind to the difficulties and tensions that have often divided these communities. The panel discussion aims to shed light on historcial and contemporary issues, and articulate a broad vision for the future of Muslim-Jewish relations in Canada--one based on mutual respect and good faith.

Speakers:

Imam Abdullah Antepli, Chief Representative of Muslim Affairs, Duke University

Rabbi Daniel Korobkin, Senior Rabbi, Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto

Ingrid Mattson, Chair in Islamic Studies, Huron University College

Yoni Goldstein, Editor, Canadian Jewish News
