Rabbis and imams from Great Britain will visit the United States to expand to Europe a program that pairs mosques and synagogues.

The Weekend of Twinning, an initiative started by Rabbi Marc Schneier and The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, last November paired 50 mosques and 50 synagogues representing more than 100,000 Jews and Muslims in communities across North America to speak out and call for an end to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
