Faiths Come Together in Joint Action
Tony Blair, The Guardian
Last year on Mitzvah Day, Muslims and Jews in Nottingham collected Christmas toys for deprived children. In London, Muslims held a food festival with the Westminster Synagogue in Knightsbridge. At the refugee drop-in centre at the New North London Synagogue people made up "welcome packs" for Darfur asylum seekers and at St Alban's parish church in Golders Green worshippers joined with congregants from Alyth Synagogue to collect food for the hungry. The staff at my Faith Foundation spent time making colourful hospital gowns for children having cleft palate operations in India as part of Blue Peter's Operation Smile appeal.
