N.Y. Rabbis Pull Out of Muslim-Jewish Twinning Project

11/15/2010

(JTA) -- Two rabbis in western New York have pulled out of a Muslim-Jewish outreach effort, charging that the national sponsor is involved in Islamic fundamentalism.

The "twinning" project, which has been held each November since 2008, is a project of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding in cooperation with the Islamic Society of North America.

The ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case.
