BRIDGES: MUSLIM-JEWISH DIALOGUE @ NYU
Bridges is a student-run club that works in conjunction with the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life and the Islamic Center at NYU to bring together knowledgeable and passionate Jewish and Muslim students to engage in constructive and comparative discussions of our faiths. We strive to learn from each other so that we me may put aside notions of “Us vs. Them” and responsibly confront both our similarities and differences in an attempt to achieve a mutual understanding and sense of shared purpose.
"The problems we face today, violent conflicts, destruction of nature, poverty, hunger and so on, are human-created problems which can be resolved through human effort, understanding and the development of a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. We need to cultivate a universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share."
