Episode 5: Muslim-Jewish Relations in Israel, Germany and the US

In this special episode, we take a virtual journey to three countries: Germany, Israel, and the United States. What initiatives, organizations, and projects already exist in the field of Muslim-Jewish relations and what can we learn from other countries? Together with our seven extraordinary interview partners, we give you an overview of the topics that are important for Muslim-Jewish relations. Our interview partners are Arik Rudnitzky (Project Manager, Konrad Adenauer Program for Jewish-Arab Cooperation, Tel Aviv University), Avi Shilon (Professor for Political Science, New York University / Tel Aviv University), Mohammad Darawshe (Director, Planning, Equality & Shared Society, Givat Haviva Center), Ari Gordon (Director, U. S. Muslim-Jewish Relations at the American Jewish Committee), Mehnaz Afridi (Director, Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Education Center, Manhattan College), Yasemin Soylu (Co-Organizer, Muslim-Jewish Culture Days Heidelberg) and Ilya Sichrovsky (Founder, Muslim-Jewish Conference). Why do Hebrew-speaking teachers in Israel teach at Arabic-speaking schools and vice versa? How does a conference organized by volunteers manage to bring together hundreds of Muslims and Jews, and what impact did the US election year have on Muslim-Jewish relations in the US?  Answers to these questions and much more can be found in episode 5, so be sure to listen in! The research project „Mecca and Jerusalem“ (Heidelberg Center for Jewish Studies) focuses on the history, present, and future of Muslim-Jewish relations. Through lectures and interviews, the podcast brings together philosophical, cultural, and political perspectives from Jewish Studies, Middle East Studies, and Israel Studies. The podcast is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and is produced in cooperation with the national broadcast service Hessischer Rundfunk, the Department of Islamic Studies at the University of Frankfurt, and the University of Heidelberg. The hosts are Beyza Arslan, Johannes Becke, Dana Daymand, and Frederek Musall.
