Rethinking Jewish and Muslim Life in Berlin, Part 2

People from all over the world of various religions and worldviews live in Germany and its capital, Berlin. Consequently, global conflicts and wars often have an impact on the the socio-political life there.

The challenges of multicultural coexistence became once again evident after the Hamas attacks against Israel on October 7th, 2023, and Israel’s subsequent war in Gaza. What does Jewish and Muslim life in Berlin look like today? We will be discussing the history and stories at two events in New York.

Our second guest from this series will be SUKAYNA EL-ZAYAT. On July 10th at 5:30 PM, our director, Stefan Liebich, will engage in a discussion with her under the title “Rethinking Muslim Life in Berlin and Germany“. Sukayna El-Zayat will be available to answer questions from the audience afterward.

Sukayna El-Zayat studied International Relations in the Netherlands and was active in the Muslim Youth Germany and has worked in the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Students Organisations as an Anti-Islamophobia Officer. Sukayna works as our colleague in the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung in Berlin.

WHEN: Wednesday, July 10, 5:30 PM

WHERE: RLS NYC, 275 Madison Ave, Suite 2114, New York City.
