While there are many groups on
campus that focus on shared inter-
ests, one student group centers
around bringing together those
with different backgrounds.
A campus organization com-
mitted to social action and cultural
awareness, MuJew is a student
group that seeks to build inter-per-
sonal bridges between Muslim and
Jewish students at the University.
LSA sophomores Molly Mar-
dit and Jenna Weinberg and LSA
senior Husnah Khan founded
MuJew in October of last year, in
an effort to bring Muslim and Jew-
ish students together in a relaxed
atmosphere that fostered mutual
understanding and constructive
dialogue.
Mardit said the organization
was born out of the University's
MuJew Alternative Spring Break
trip, which she said was the only
official event in which Muslim and

MuJew
Jewish students formally worked
together.
Mardit said the group aims to
"(continue) the conversation on
some of the things that Muslims
and Jews share in common."
Weinberg said MuJew is com-
posed of three pillars: social action,
volunteer work, and cultural
awareness.
MuJew also "doesn't take a
stance" on the Arab-Israeli con-
flict, Weinberg said, though the
group seeks to create a safe space
for members to talk about the issue
if they want.
"(We) shy away from the con-
flict," Weinberg said.
She said the group is instead
about "building strong ties
between our religions. The conflict
isn't specific to th'e group. It isn't
specifically about Palestinians or
Jews. Not all Jews are Israelis and
not all Muslims are Palestinians."

The three founders are current-
ly looking to expand the group,
and differentiate the group from
the alternative spring break trip
by changing the organization's
name.
Khan said MuJew plans to work
with different student cultural
groups on campus to recruit new
members and that the group is not
exclusively for Muslims and Jews.
All students are welcome to join.
The group also intends to work
with a local Muslim-Jewish youth
group and work with United 2
Heal, another student organiza-
tion on campus that works to pro-
vide medical supplies to struggling
nations.
Weinberg said MuJew also plans
to hostsocial events like bowling or
laser tag so that members can build
"actual friendships and not just
dialogue."
