Imperial College Jewish and Islamic Societies present

What makes me who I am?

What makes me Jewish? What makes me Muslim? An interfaith discussion.

The JSoc and ISoc of Imperial College in association with Imperial College Interfaith Society and Joseph Interfaith Foundation, held a seminar on this wonderful opportunity to delve into the fundamental similarities and differences between Jewish and Muslim theology and jurisprudence.

The event consisted of two presentations by a Muslim and Jewish student followed by Q and A and dialogue opportunities. The aim of the talk was to create an initial meeting between some of the Isoc and Jsoc members at Imperial College and to encourage continued interest in such future meetings.

Mehri Niknam, the Executive Director of the Joseph Interfaith Foundation addressed the key concepts with regards to Jewish-Muslim dialogue, its challenges and rewards.
