Shabbat Service and Cultural Program

MUSLIM-JEWISH RELATIONS:  Working Together to Prevent Hate Crimes

How can we reach out beyond our own  community to create understanding and prevent hate?  Natalia Mahmud, Assistant Director, U.S. Muslim-Jewish Relations at the American Jewish Committee in New York, will update us on current Muslim-Jewish relations and explore steps that can lead to inclusion, understanding, and building bridges.

Ms. Mahmud works on the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council and helps guide the council’s domestic policy agenda. She previously worked for the U.S. Government as a Senior Program Examiner for the White House Office of Management and Budget (2009-2016).  She also served as an Advisor at the U.S. Mission to the UN where she was a delegate to the UN Fifth Committee working on management and reform issues.  Ms. Mahmud earned her Master’s in public policy from The George Washington University and holds a BA from Fordham University.

Then stick around after the service and program for pot luck desserts and schmoozing. We’ll provide wine, soft drinks, coffee and tea.

RSVP is requested but not required.
