Mosque visit - Sunday 21 February 14:30

One of the first events we organised after formation of the Muslim Jewish Forum was a visit to a mosque. Since then, although we have held some events at mosques, we have never organised another visit just to go to a mosque and learn more about what it does, how it is organised and managed etc.

There is currently an initiative amongst British Muslims to hold "open doors" events for visitors to mosques. See this report from ITV News regarding the North West. As part of this, we are organising a visit to one of the mosques listed in the Independent article.

When: Sunday 21 February at 2.30pm
Where: North Manchester Jamia Masjid, 3 Woodlands Road, Manchester, M8 9LF. Map below.
Cost The event is free to attend.
Food Tea and light refreshments will be provided.
RSVP Please book with rsvp.ma@muslimjewish.org.uk by 17 February to help manage the numbers.

 

 

Film "Besa" Thursday 25 Feb 1800 and Thursday 10 March 1800

We have partnered with several organisations listed below to invite you to two events exploring the use of film as a tool to open up conversations around faith, identity and belief.

The initial event will be an opportunity to watch the film ‘Besa - The Promise’, a documentary revealing the story of Muslim Albanians who risked their lives sheltering Jews During the Holocaust. Our Co-Chair Mohammed Amin watched this film at JW3 in London in January 2015 and found it very moving.

The screening of the film will be followed by dinner and discussion.

A follow-up event will examine other film clips that explore questions around faith, identity and belief as stimulus for discussion with impetus to plan future intercultural projects.

When:

Thursday 25 February 6pm - 9pm: Film screening followed by dinner and discussion.

Thursday 10 March 6pm - 9pm: Ohter film clips and discussion.

Where: Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, The University of Manchester, Bridgeford Street, Manchester M13 9PL. Map below.
Cost Free, but pre-booking required.
Food The food served will provide for vegetarians, vegans and kosher.
RSVP You need to book using this Eventbrite link. Once you get to the Eventbrite page, it will seem as if you are being asked to select a date, but in fact you can register for both dates at the same time.
