So proud of our change-maker project organized by Deanna Neil who partnered with Hadir Elsayad to bring together children from the SIJCC - Silverlake Independent Jewish Community Center and the Islamic Center of Southern California (ICSC) for a day of learning, connecting, and serving others. Congratulations on a job well done! #MeetAMuslim #MeetAJew #BreakNewGroundPosted by NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change on Thursday, June 16, 2016
Muslim and Jewish Youth Inspiring Change (MAJIC) is a high school leadership program created by NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change.
Circle of Courage
This year, NewGround’s High School Leadership Council decided it was time to stand up to hate with compassion and courage. They teamed up with filmmaker Wesam Nassar to create a public space on the Santa Monica Promenade to affirm their stories. This film, Circle of Courage, makes the case that young Muslims and Jews are more powerful when they stand together. In this atmosphere of increasing intolerance, we hope you can help us amplify this message of solidarity and hope coming from these emerging young leaders. #Courage2Stand #Islamophobia #AntisemitismPosted by NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change on Tuesday, August 30, 2016
Our teenagers have learned through their program the injustice of these blanket statements, and will spread a new message of curiosity over assumptions for the next generation.
As we go into Shabbat, please take a moment to watch this video on the incredible exchange that students at Sinai Akiba Academy / The Douglas Family ECC get to participate in each year. We are so proud of the work that they do! Shabbat Shalom!Posted by Sinai Temple on Friday, May 27, 2016
