Thank you to Gary Rosenblatt for having the courage to write about the Muslim
Leadership Initiative (“Where Muslims, Jews Clash — And Hug,” Nov. 20) that helps bridge the gap between Muslims and
Jews. Like the Muslim participants who received criticism from their own
community, Rosenblatt risked members of our Jewish community lashing out
at him for “engaging with the enemy.”

I am grateful that Rosenblatt
wrote about this important initiative and the benefits it brings to all
parties. We will only make progress when reasonable people from both sides
engage in meaningful dialogue. Thank you for taking a stance.

New Rochelle, N.Y.
