Jewish and Muslim communities came together to celebrate the festival of Succot.
Organised by Faiths Forum for London both communities shared a Kosher Succot brunch in order to further strengthen the bonds between two religions

This partnership between the Al Khoei Islamic Centre and Brondesbury Park Synagogue was initially inspired by the terrorist attack on a Jewish Kosher Supermarket in Paris 2015. 

The events that day motivated the local Imam and Rabbi from Brondesbury Park to build on the bridges created last year between their two thriving communities. 

This year was about reinforcing the cohesion between the two communities and set a practical example to both the immediate and wider communities across the UK. 
There were talks on faith, communities and homelessness, and attendees brought non-perishable food items that were donated to a local food bank.

Rabbi Natan Levy, Head of Operation for Faiths Forum for London, said, “The Succah in a Mosque initiative, supported by The Faiths Forum for London, commemorates the Jewish Festival of Succot. 

"A seemingly simple project but it represents so much more as it brings together the Muslim and Jewish communities promoting dialogue and learning about our commonalities. 

"Food, people and a hut with no doors, where everyone is invited, is a great combination to build on the foundations created from last year’s event."
