"The moving story of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom not only provided an opportunity to think about Muslim-Jewish relations, but became an entry point for even broader consideration of the importance of relationships, attentiveness, compassion, and solidarity in building a just world."
— Lindsey Chou, Interfaith Philadelphia
Amidst a rising tide of Islamophobia and antisemitism, two women from religions often thought to be pitted against one another came together to start regular meetings of members of their communities. Stranger/Sister documents the rise and rapid expansion of The Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, as this concept takes off and new chapters open in cities and communities across the country, each comprised of and co-led by women of both faiths. As women in the group build deeper connections with one another, old stereotypes are replaced by new understandings and a foundation for intersectional social justice is formed.
