Muslim, Jewish college students offer hope for peace in Middle East
If Muslims and Jews along with a Christian, an agnostic, and a Hindu can get along under one roof there is hope that there can be peace and coexistence in the Middle East.

That was the message brought to Congregation Bnai Tikvah in North Brunswick Dec. 12 by two students, one Muslim and one Jewish, who live in the Middle East Coexistence House on the campus of Douglass College in New Brunswick.

The two Danielle Josephs, a Jewish senior from Teaneck, and Nadia Sheikh, a sophomore Muslim from Weehawken came at the invitation of the synagogue, which had collected toys for a drive sponsored by the women of Coexistence House. They were distributed to children affected by the recent war in Israel through the Jewish Agency for Israel and in Lebanon by the Islamic Relief.

Both women spoke of coming to the realization that interfaith dialogue and understanding were the only solutions if the people of the Middle East were ever to live in peace.
