‘Salam Lekoulam’, a new associative combining two words from Islam and Judaism, advocates a plural and tolerant Morocco
Chaired by Jérémie Dahan, who is active in inter-religious dialogue, the new association “Salam Lekoulam” has chosen a name composed of two words from the two religions (Islam and Judaism) symbolizing the Moroccan identity. “Muslims and Jews from Morocco, Israel, France and the world are anxious to weave a link of identity, a fraternal and solidary link, similar to a spider thread, to build the future together,” explained the association, whose honorary president is André Azoulay, advisor to Morocco’s King Mohammed VI.
“Morocco needs all its children and we all need Morocco,” it said.
The association’s main objectives are ‘’to make a common voice heard on the major challenges that arise here and elsewhere and fight together all forms of racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, stigmatization, to communicate and influence each other and with honesty on current events and challenges of the societies in which we live.’’Advertisement
‘’Our population in general – within the Kingdom or in the diaspora – and the new generations in particular, need to discover, to open up, to learn, to be culturally refreshed, to reclaim our history and our identity,” says ‘Salam Lekoulam’.
