European Jewish and Muslim leaders agree to work together against rising xenophobia

Jewish and Muslim communities in Europe are confronted with rising xenophobia, hate crimes, and policies that are curtailing their right to religious practices, leaders of these communities said at the first plenary meeting of the European Muslim Jewish Leadership Council (MJLC) in Amsterdam on Tuesday. Chief Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt of Moscow speaks at the first meeting of the Muslim Jewish Leadership Council, made up of Jewish and Muslim religious representatives from nearly 20 European countries.

The Council was founded to serve the need, more urgent than ever in today's Europe, to free religious people and religions from prejudice, false claims, attacks, and violence. They were meeting in Amsterdam to discuss how European Jewish and Muslim communities can work together to protect their respective communities' religious practice and promote solidarity between their communities in the face of adversity.

The Council is chaired by Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, Chief Rabbi of Moscow, and Mufti Nedzad Grabus, of Slovenia, and facilitated by the Vienna-based International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID), which supports interreligious platforms for dialogue in Africa, Asia, the Arab Region, and Europe.
