NewGround’s Comprehensive Approach to Muslim-Jewish Relations

NewGround works to create a world in which trust and partnership replace the current atmosphere of mutual suspicion among Muslims and Jews by equipping Muslims and Jews in America with the skills, resources, and relationships needed to improve Muslim-Jewish relations and cooperation on issues of shared concern.

 

Born as a joint project of the Muslim and Jewish communities in 2006, NewGround became an independent organization in 2011 and is housed at Los Angeles City Hall by the City Human Relations Commission.   In the last year alone, NewGround has reached over 2000 people with our fellowships, educational workshops and public programs.  As part of our comprehensive approach to strengthening Muslim-Jewish relations in Los Angeles, NewGround has partnered with more than 30 Muslim and Jewish organizations to reach a broad cross-section of the two communities in Los Angeles and beyond.  Our programs break the mold of expected interfaith engagement.

 

We Were Speaking of Faith

 

NewGround featured on “Speaking of Faith” with Krista Tippett.

 

DESCRIPTION: Curiosity Over Assumptions – Inter-Religiosity Meets a New Generation

This week, Speaking of Faith shines a light on the friendship and shared passion of two young activists, Jewish and Muslim, who are part of a new generation of inter-religious encounter. Together these young women are implementing templates of practical relationship that value curiosity over assumptions and understand conflict as part of any relationship. Krista Tippett explores what they are learning from their work in the microcosm of Los Angeles – and the larger universe of risky innovation of which they are part.
