Uniting Muslims and Jews. Bridging to a Better Tomorrow.
What is the Mukhayriq Initiative?
The Mukhayriq Initiative is a new Muslim-Jewish effort that seeks to build on the shared history and shared values that bring Muslims and Jews together, knowing that united our peoples can write a new chapter of an ancient relationship.
The Mukhayriq Initiative was borne from an understanding that Jews and Muslims have a long, intertwined, and peaceful history together, and that rejects the radicalized elements which aim to divide our two peoples.
The Mukhayriq Initiative draws inspiration from the partnership forged at the very founding of Islam between the Islamic Prophet Muhammed and his neighbor and ally, Rabbi Mukhayriq. Read More Here.
