FFEU is the international address for Muslim Jewish Relations and the national address for Black-Jewish relations. We are committed to the belief that direct dialogue between ethnic communities is the most effective path towards reconciliation
The FFEU has become the international address for Muslim-Jewish relations. Our Muslim-Jewish Programming takes place in over 30 countries and on all six populated continents through our signature program "The Weekend of Twinning."
The FFEU was founded in 1989 for the purpose of restoring the historic alliance between African and Jewish Americans which reached its strongest point during the American Civil Rights Movement.
The FFEU is working to understand, and improve relations between Latinos and Jews.
The Foundation is proud that our work has a global impact.

An interfaith initiative that bordered on the quixotic when it began five years ago — pairing synagogues and mosques for weekend-long programs that feature theological dialogue and cultural exchanges — has already grown into a symbol of how it is possible to cross religious barriers. The New York-based Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, an independent ecumenical group that stresses the improvement of Muslim-Jewish relations, will sponsor its sixth annual Weekend of Twinning on Nov. 15-17. The weekend will mark the start of a month-long series of programs co-hosted by Jewish and Muslim houses of worship, and other institutions of the two Abrahamic faiths.
Boston- Muslims and Jews will come together at the historic Vilna Synagogue to strengthen ties that were rattled by last spring’s Boston Marathon bombings.
Detroit, Chicago and Denver-Muslims and Jews will gather to feed hungry and the homeless.
