FOCUS - Jewish / Muslim Relations in Greater Cincinnati

How does the tension and violent altercations among members of the Jewish and Muslim faiths in the Middle East affect the perspectives and actions of members of the Muslim and Jewish communities here in Greater Cincinnati? Does this tension from abroad breed similar violence, discrimination, and misunderstanding here at home?


Kathy Lehr talks with Shakila Ahmad and Dr. Gary Zola about the history of the violent tension in the Middle East and how members of Cincinnati’s Muslim and Jewish communities are working together peacefully to better understand members of the opposite faith.
