Religions in Dialogue

Yesterday we welcomed 100 Muslim students from the Razi School in Queens thanks to Dr. Boris Pincus, and his group Religions in Dialogue, who made the visit possible. The students heard from distinguished Jewish and Muslim leaders and elected officials before touring the Museum and hearing Holocaust survivor Sally Frishberg speak about her life. Fostering interfaith dialogue is at the heart of what the Museum of Jewish Heritage does on a daily basis. We thank the students, teachers, and all other guests for coming to the Museum to share in a journey of understanding.

We also wanted to especially thank Liz Edelstein and her staff for all the work they did to make the students' visit special.
