MUS­LIMS BROKE the Ra­madan fast with a kosher meal at the North Western Re­form Syn­a­gogue on Mon­day. Around 35 Mus­lims and 25 Jews started the “if­tar” meal with dates fol­lowed by fish balls, chal­lah rolls and sal­ads. Rabbi Mau­rice Michaels, who sits on the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee of the In­ter­faith Net­work, said the event, which was co-or­di­nated with The Big If­tar group “was es­sen­tial”. He added: “People were eat­ing, talk­ing and build­ing re­la­tion­ships, break­ing down prej­u­dices and stereo­types. It’s im­por­tant, es­pe­cially with all the ten­sion that’s go­ing on in the Mid­dle East at the mo­ment. It’s not so easy to hurt each other when you know each other.”
