Jews and Muslims at Yale works to create understanding between Jews and Muslims in the Yale community on religious and political issues. We seek to foster a strong community of Jews and Muslims, through which lasting friendships and continued dialogue can be achieved. By establishing a base of friendships and strong relationships, JAM endeavors to break down barriers and create new perspectives on present conflicts.
JAM works to create a community of Jews and Muslims and a safe space for dialogue through regular small-scale discussions, social and educational events, and group dinners. We seek to educate our members about each others’ cultures and customs and gain a deeper appreciation of our similarities and differences. We also hope to raise awareness among the broader campus community about Judaism, Islam, and issues affecting Jews and Muslims through text studies, sharing of religious experiences, and service projects. JAM aims to foster an atmosphere of constructive and civil dialogue on campus and make visible shows of solidarity.
