Salaam-Shalom InitiativeJews and Muslims United: The Salaam-Shalom Initiative

Armin Langer is founder of the European grass roots organization called the Salaam-Shalom Initiative.  With branches in five countries and seven cities, the Salaam Shalom Initiative brings Jews, Muslims, and allies together for discussions and public activism.  They unite against the fear-mongering from the far right, which seeks to pit these minorities against each other and harm their well-being.
