Jews, Muslims in Berlin team up on bike rides against hatred

BERLIN -- Some 25 Jews and Muslims have teamed up on tandem bicycle rides through the German capital in a protest against growing anti-Semitism and attacks on Muslims in the country.


Some were rabbis and imams, others women in headscarves and Jewish community members from Berlin and beyond who shared the bikes on a tour through the city.


Rabbi Elias Dray, one of the organizers of Sunday's ride that started at Berlin's Holocaust memorial, said it was intended to boost contacts between Jews and Muslims and other Germans.


Dray said that "there's often prejudice in places where there's little contact ... anywhere it's a big gain to get to know Judaism and Islam."
