New Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council Gears Up To Work With Trump Administration

A newly formed council of prominent American Muslims and Jews announced its formation this week in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s win. Spearheaded by advocacy organizations the American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council wasn’t a response to the election outcome, said Robert Silverman, AJC director of Muslim-Jewish relations. In fact, he said, its been in a process of formation all year. “This is not at all a reaction to Trump,” Silverman told the Huffington Post. “It’s a reaction to divisions in our country.” The advisory council is comprised of a bipartisan coalition of over 30 religious leaders, business executives and scholars from around the country. Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein, and Farooq Kathwari, President and CEO of Ethan Allen, are serving as the council’s co-chairs. “This is a group chaired by business people intentionally,” Silverman said. The group’s focus won’t primarily be dialogue, he noted, and instead will work to draft policy proposals likely to make a concrete difference in people’s lives.  Muslims and Jews have many things to share, not only common faiths but also common fate.” The council is focusing on developing a domestic policy agenda to propose to Congress and held its first planning meeting on Nov. 3 in New York City. So far, Silverman said, the agenda includes topics like immigration and refugee issues, religious liberty as it applies to “reasonable accommodations of religious practices in the workplace,” and improving enforcement of hate crimes laws already on the books. The council will host a public event Feb. 1 on Capitol Hill to present its policy agenda, Silverman said. Members of Congress are invited to attend. Of the incoming Trump administration Silverman commented, “We’re not going to assume the worst. We want to work with the new administration, but we’ll be very vigilant. If there are any kind of bigotry statements, we’re going to be one of the first to speak out.” Deborah E. Lipstadt, a historian and author of Denying the Holocaust who famously went to court with a Holocaust-denier in the 1990s, is among the new council’s members. She said she considered the advisory group a “tentative early step” towards greater relations between Muslim and Jewish communities. “It cannot hurt and it might even help,” she said in an email to HuffPost. Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and a member of the council, said one of the group’s key goals is to “promote respect and understanding” among the two faith communities and “use our collective wisdom to preempt any potential crisis from forming.” Imam Shamsi Ali, president of the Nusantara Foundation and a member of the new council, reiterated that the group isn’t a response to Trump, but rather evidence of “a strong commitment to both Jewish and Muslim communities to engage in a constructive dialogue, reconciliation, and partnership.” “We truly believe that Muslims and Jews have many things to share,” he told HuffPost, “not only common faiths but also common fate.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

FACT SHEET: White House Announces Commitments to the Call to Action for Private Sector Engagement on the Global Refugee Crisis

Today, the White House is announcing that 51 companies from across the American economy have made new, measurable, and significant commitments to aid refugees in the United States and around the world in response to the President’s June Call to Action. These companies, representing more than 2.5 million employees, more than $775 billion in annual revenue, and more than $3.2 trillion in market capitalization, are standing with the Administration to demonstrate that private sector innovation and resources can have a durable impact on refugees residing in countries on the frontlines of the global refugee crisis and in countries of resettlement, like the United States. In total, these 51 companies have committed to investing, donating, or raising more than $650 million.  These commitments will provide: Support for more than 6.3 million refugees across more than 20 countries; Educational opportunities for more than 80,000 refugees, including through digital content, mentorship, and classroom support; Employment opportunities for more than 220,000 refugees, including through mentorship, training, internships, and job placements; Greater financial inclusion and economic integration for more than 4 million refugees; and Partnerships with more than 70 refugee-serving NGOs. There are more than 65 million displaced people in the world today, the highest number on record since the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) began collecting statistics.  More than 21 million of these people have crossed international borders in search of safety and are assessed as refugees.  From this population, a small number of refugees are provided opportunities for third-country resettlement. It is important to highlight that refugees who are admitted to the United States undergo the highest level of security screening of any category of traveler to the U.S. including the involvement of the National Counterterrorism Center, the FBI's Terrorist Screening Center, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State and the Department of Defense. A crisis of this scale requires more than government action.  In issuing the Call to Action, President Obama challenged the U.S. private sector to draw on its unique expertise, resources and entrepreneurial spirit to help refugees regain control over their lives and integrate into their new communities. Their response is unprecedented. Call to Action Impact Areas The Call to Action was principally focused on generating new commitments in three “impact areas”:  Education – Facilitating refugee children and young adults’ education by ensuring that refugee students can access schools of all levels and creating quality long-distance learning platforms and programs. Employment – Increasing employment opportunities for refugees, supporting refugee entrepreneurship, and assisting refugees’ reentry into the workforce. Enablement – Increasing humanitarian financing, strengthening infrastructure and access to resources needed for refugees to become self-reliant, and supporting countries taking new steps to welcome refugees or allow them to work and attend school. Partnership for Refugees:  Catalyzing Durable Solutions To facilitate private sector commitments in response to the Call to Action, the White House announced in June the creation of the Partnership for Refugees, an initiative established through collaboration between the Department of State and USA for UNHCR, with significant support from Accenture Federal Services.  The Partnership for Refugees has provided guidance to private sector organizations that have wished to take action and has helped to ensure that their pledges are sustainable and responsive to refugees’ needs.  On November 1, 2016, the Tent Foundation will assume control over the operations and management of the Partnership for Refugees, thereby ensuring the long-term vitality of this initiative. Other federal agencies supporting this initiative include the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Department of Homeland Security, the Small Business Administration, and the Department of Commerce. *           *           * Private Sector Participants to the Call to Action In response to the President’s Call to Action, the following companies have put forward commitments to address the global refugee crisis.  You can view their detailed commitments here.
