Yale students with opinions about the relationship between Jews and Muslims now have an online forum in which to air their thoughts.

On Sunday night, Jews and Muslims at Yale (JAM) launched a new blog called “Jews, Muslims and Dialogue” that members said they hope will be a vehicle for discussion about issues ranging from the concept of justice in Islam and Judaism to student reactions to Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz’s LAW ’62 visit to Yale earlier this month.

Several Yale undergraduates founded JAM in fall 2001 following the attacks on the World Trade Center. Jason Blau ’08, former co-head of JAM, said he hopes the blog will expand the organization’s influence beyond Yale’s campus.
