Two Faiths under One Roof in the Bronx

For the past two years, a congregation of Orthodox Jews in the Parkchester area of the Bronx have been praying under the same roof as Muslims at the Islamic Cultural Center of North America. Producer Judith Escalona of CUNY-TV’s show “Independent Sources” spoke with Sheikh Moussa Drammeh, Leon Bleckman of Congregation Beis Menachem, and the community organizer who brought them together, Patricia Tomasulo. To learn how the Gambian-born Sheikh Drammeh came to offer the aging Jewish congregation space for worship, and how the members of his mosque responded, watch the video.
