Two Mancunians, one Muslim and the other Jewish, have come together in the wake of the Manchester and London attacks to help build closer ties between the two communities by celebrating what they have in common. Inspired by The Great Get Together events taking place nationwide this weekend, a new online video made by Rahma Anis and Lauren Lee – one Muslim and the other Jewish – highlights the things they have in common, like a shared addiction to TV and Youtube! The video ends with the message ‘Great Together’.
You look at two people from different communities – a Muslim and a Jew – and you make certain assumptions about them. Maybe we make some assumptions about each other too. But we’re really not very different at all.
