Interfaith efforts tested

WAYLAND

The conflict in the Middle East has put a strain on efforts to promote understanding between Jews and Muslims in Boston's western suburbs -- and across the United States, Religion News Service reports today.

Malik Khan, president of the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland, which has carried on a successful interfaith partnership with nearby Temple Shir Tikva, says it's been a strain "but our effort is to build bridges and strengthen those bonds."

The article also looks at the dialogue taking place between the Islamic Masumeen Center in Hopkinton, Mass., and the American Jewish Committee.
