Judeo-Islam Friendship Weekend in France

Le Figaro – November 8, 2010

French Jewish and Muslim communities recently met over couscous in Ris-Orangis (in Essonne) as part of a weekend of gatherings related to Judeo-Islamic friendship (the AJMF or l’amitié judéo-musulmane de France). The principle behind the gatherings is to meet within each other’s places of worship to share, exchange ideas and pray. This year approximately forty community groups in the Ile-de-France region participated.
