“Muslims and Jews prayed together side-by-side in public spaces across Los Angeles, in an effort to show that peace is possible,” read the description by Two Faiths One Prayer, who staged this event.

“Despite growing Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism in America and abroad, the two religions have more in common than meets the eye, including praying to the same G-d. Help us spread the message of peace, love, and unity — share the video!”

NewGround fellows from the 2015 cohort planned the day of shared prayer and filmed their experience. To learn more about their project and how you can get involved: www.twofaithsoneprayer.com
