Abstract (summary)

When many people hear the words "Muslim" and "Jew" mentioned together, images of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict immediately come to mind. Violence in the Middle East in many ways has created a dark cloud over relations between Jews and Muslims worldwide, including in the United States. Consequently, several groups and campaigns have formed throughout the U.S. in an attempt to improve Muslim-Jewish relations. While some experts say the trend in interfaith dialogue appears to be growing, the jury is still out on the overall impact of such efforts.

What's clear is there are many types of Muslim-Jewish dialogue endeavors, and their results vary. Interfaith groups face several challenges, not the least of which is addressing contentious topics. While it's unclear what effect these groups will have on long-term Jewish-Muslim relations, experts say they usually won't cause harm and their impacts on individuals can be life-changing.
