The third-annual Spread Hummus not Hate tour, co-organized by FFEU Muslim-Jewish Program Director Walter Ruby brought together leading members of the Muslim and Jewish communities of Greater Washington in an effort to bridge the divide that has emerged between these two communities globally. The tour made a number of stops around the Washington region, including at the University of Maryland, Farragut Square and a number of synagogues and mosques, spreading its hopeful message far and wide.
The Spread Hummus Not Hate minivan tour around Greater Washington culminated in a rally which drew more than 200 Muslim and Jewish students and community activists to a late afternoon rally on the Quad at American University where they vowed to stand up for each other and in support of religious freedom for all Americans.
We thank the Greater Washington Muslim-Jewish Forum, leaders of AU Hillel, the Jewish Student Association, the AU Islam Awareness Campaign, and the Muslim Student Association for their partnership!
