As it commemorates the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the state-sponsored attacks against German Jews and their property, the Austrian Jewish community will for the first time observe the event with the leadership of the country’s Muslim community.

Rabbi Marc Schneier, spiritual leader of The Hampton Synagogue who was invited to attend the event with Imam Shamsi Ali of Manhattan, praised the Austrian Jewish community for “setting an example for all Europe by reaching out to its Muslim neighbors.”
