Jews and Muslims doing multiculturalism with a big smile
JCCV President Jennifer Huppert stated, “This is a major event of Cultural Diversity Week and highlights how Jews and Muslims can work together in good faith and good humour. The aim is to break down stereotypes, and emphasise that we have more in common, than we have differences.”
This was the third time the event has been held, following on from the inaugural Jewish – Muslim Comedy Debate in 2013.
AIS Executive Director Ahmet Keskin stated, “AIS aims to foster and develop community harmony through multicultural and interfaith activities. This sort of event demonstrates very clearly Victorian multiculturalism in practice with a smile. Most importantly we had a lot of fun together.”
Ms Huppert and Mr Keskin thanked the Victorian State Government and the City of Melbourne for their support of the event.
