Our Executive Director, Aziza Hasan, and Assistant Director, Andrea Hodos, spoke to the Associated Press this past week about the ongoing violence taking place in Israel-Palestine. “We do not know the immediate path through this,” Aziza says, “but we are certain that until we humanize one another, there won’t be a path at all.”
NewGround exists to convene Muslims and Jews in good faith discussion with one another, especially in times of distress. We will be continuing this tradition this week by hosting a private gathering for our alumni in order to provide an opportunity to connect with one another about the events we’re presently observing in Israel-Palestine.
All alumni are welcome to join this gathering, which will be held the evening of Thursday, May 20, on Zoom. Please email Tasneem Noor [at] firstname.lastname@example.org for the call-in details.
