Muslims and Jews in America: Commonalities, Contentions, and Complexities
Reza Aslan and Aaron J. Hahn Tapper, editors
(Palgrave Macmillan: 2011)
This book is an exploration of contemporary Jewish-Muslim relations in the United States and the distinct ways in which these two communities interact with one another in the American context. Each essay discusses a different episode from the recent twentieth and current twenty-first century American milieu that links these two groups together.
CRCC’s Hebah Farrag and Rabbi Reuven Firestone co-authored a chapter in the book titled, “Sacred Text Study as Dialogue between Muslims and Jews.”
Hebah Farrag is the assistant director of research of the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture.
