Muslim Jewish Women’s Alliance

A joint project of
The Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council and the Muslim Alliance of Indiana

The Muslim-Jewish Women’s Alliance builds relationships between local Jewish and Muslim women based upon mutual trust and respect. The program will consist of a series of eleven 90-minute sessions, the first of which will begin on Thursday, February 9th at 7:00 PM. Sessions will typically be held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, although some sessions may fluctuate based upon the nature of the session and its location.

Project Objectives

  • Build meaningful relationships between local Jewish and Muslim women
  • Facilitate discussions and activities on a broad-range of topics pertinent to both communities
  • Plant seeds to combat Antisemitism and Islamophobia in the local community
  • Transform the broader community by serving as a model for mutual respect and coexistence

 

Selection Process

Selection into this project will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants from each community. The selection process is anticipated to be competitive. Applicants are asked to make a year-long commitment to attending 85% of sessions. Those applicants who are deemed most qualified will be selected for a personal interview with the selection committee. Applicants will receive final confirmation via email of their acceptance into the program.
