Why this Forum was created

Islam and Judaism are closer to each other than any other two religions. However many Muslims and Jews grow up in Britain knowing little about the other community. In 2004 a group of us decided that, even if we couldn’t change the world, we could do something to bring the two communities together locally, and set up the Muslim Jewish Forum of Greater Manchester.

Our mission is set out in paragraph (3) of our Memorandum of Association which is reproduced below:

“3. The objects for which the Forum is established are to develop the cultural and social ties between the Muslim and Jewish Communities of Greater Manchester; to educate members of the Muslim and Jewish Communities in relation to their shared values and common Abrahamic tradition, heritage, history and culture; and to promote better understanding within the wider community of the interests and values that are common to the Muslim and Jewish Communities.”

There are two main reasons for doing this

  1. Muslims and Jews have many common interests which are better pursued if we act together. Some are listed below.
  2. Learning more about each other, and making new friendships, enriches us as individuals as well as making our city a better place.
