Standing with our Muslim Family

Description

Bias and violence against the Muslim community is a growing, insidious issue in the United States. The number of assaults against Muslims in 2016 surpassed the modern peak reached in 2001, following the September 11th terrorist attacks, and incidents of anti-Muslim intimidation continue to rise, as well. In addition, the administration’s discriminatory travel ban now impacts individuals seeking visas from 13 foreign counties, most of which have Muslim-majority populations.

The Jews and Muslims are all the family of Abraham, and we stand side-by-side with our Muslim friends and family to reject Islamophobia in the strongest terms. We have a responsibility to vocally and forcefully oppose bigotry in all its forms. Our country is stronger because of the religious diversity and freedom that has always been our hallmark, and American Muslims are an indispensable part of this nation.
