A Message of Peace…

At a time when Jewish people wonder if they still have a place in France, this campaign for the Jewish Community of Boulogne has been incredibly moving. On Jan. 15th, the president of a local Muslim cultural and worship center, together with the Imam and office members, contributed €5,000 to the new Jewish cultural center of Boulogne.

President Mabrouk recalled how he himself had received many donations from the Jewish community during a construction project for the Muslim community, so it was only right to pay it forward–making this Charidy campaign not only a financial success (raising over €1 million in 36 hours), but sending a strong message of peace and understanding between these two communities.
