MJLC Statement on the Ambassadors Programme

We, the Muslim Jewish Leadership Council – Europe are delighted to announce that the MJLC Ambassadors have finalised their project proposals and have begun work on their projects which will bring the Muslim and Jewish communities in Warsaw, Frankfurt, London, and Spain closer together.

The MJLC Ambassadors Programme is intended to build up a network of young European leaders from the Jewish and Muslim faiths who share enthusiasm for interfaith work, consult regularly and can coordinate interreligious activities through city chapters in order to spread accurate information about their faiths and traditions and to promote their communities’ shared rights and interests. The MJLC Ambassadors Programme will cover projects in four European cities involving a total of eight young Jewish and Muslim “Ambassadors”, mentored by locally based MJLC members and contacts and reviewed with the help of trainers.

Following the initial three-day in-person training held in December 2022 in Warsaw the MJLC Ambassadors in each city are putting their newly-acquired skills into practice through a small joint project funded by a grant of up-to EUR 5,000 provided by the MJLC.

MJLC interreligious dialogue

After having worked with the Ambassadors to finalise their project proposals we are encouraged and impressed by their creativity, hard work, and strong drive to promote cooperation between the Muslim and Jewish communities in their cities. We will continue to support and offer guidance to our Ambassadors as their projects progress. We wish them the best of luck in implementing their projects and we look forward to seeing the fruits of their hard work over the next six months.
