Leeds ladies say 'shalom-salaam' with new Muslim and Jewish friendship project
Yorkshire Evening Post
A trailblazing new project in Leeds is aiming to forge friendships between women from the city's Muslim and Jewish communities so they can work together to build bridges, challenge misconceptions in their own communities and wider society, and foster leadership skills.
The Leeds branch of Nisa-Nashim - the Arabic and Hebrew words for 'women' - has been officially launched at the Shine centre in Harehills.
Around 100 ladies attended the launch, with speeches from special guests Julie Siddiqui and Laura Marks, the founders of the original Nisa-Nashim project in London.
