The anthology and beyond

We are a group of American Muslims and Jews--secular, cultural and religious--who are working together to create an anthology of poems by writers from these two communities. The poems may be on any subject.

After the book is published, poets from the anthology will participate in joint readings and discussions around the country.

The project aims to bring together together people from two communities that otherwise would not come together, address issues of difference and similarity, alleviate misunderstandings, and answer questions raised in encounters between American Muslims and American Jews.

Please join us.
