NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change was founded in 2006 to create a national model for healthy relations, productive engagement and social change between American Muslims and Jews. Today, NewGround is an independent group fiscally sponsored by Community Partners and housed at the City of Los Angeles Human Relations Commission in Los Angeles City Hall.
At NewGround, we believe that conflict is natural and inevitable. Yet it is not intractable-- no matter the history. Being stuck is a choice. Therefore, we build relationships between Muslims and Jews so that they can transform their communities through lasting partnership.
