Locating the Silent Muslim Majority

By Raquel Ukeles

Mosaica, Winter 2003

The author addresses the tension between the Muslim and Jewish community, and stresses the importance of improving Muslim-Jewish relations through educational and collaborative projects between the Jewish-American and Muslim-American communities. The author explores reasons why such a shift in attitudes should occur in the United States, and further elaborates recommendations for harmonious collaboration. The key to improving Jewish-Muslim relations, the author stresses, is for Jews who are familiar with Islam, and Muslims who are familiar with Judaism, to interact with one another, as they are aware of the wants, needs, and history of both religions.

Topic: Islam, Tolerance, Community Relations, Jewish-Muslim Relations, Discourse and Dialogue
