When I was in college, Jewish—Muslim relations weren't just next-to-nonexistent, they were pretty awful. And I had my part to play in that. So I could've never imagined that, fifteen years on, I'd be traveling to Israel to study Judaism and Zionism. I've since come to teach Jewish communities about Islam and Muslims, while promoting connections between our faiths in the US, Canada and Western Europe. And yet, I continue to be committed to a politics that often puts me on the other side of the aisle. Join me for a discussion on my work for the Shalom Hartman Institute, why it's so hard for Jews and Muslims to connect — and why it's critical that we do.

Haroon will be in conversation with Zalman Kastel.
