Leaders of Liverpool’s Jewish community have been invited to visit Britain’s oldest mosque as a gesture of good will and harmony between the two communities.

The meeting will be held tomorrow at 7pm in the Abdullah Quilliam Mosque, Brougham Terrace, to help further understand the local impact of the Israel and Palestine conflict.

Ibrahim Syed from the Liverpool Region Mosque Network said: “Despite conflict in the Middle East and opposing views on some matters, we are all committed to long-term peace, and mutual respect between our faiths both here and abroad.”

If successful, this will be a big step for the Liverpool community after the tension and protests. Following the October 7 Hamas attacks, The Revd Canon Dr Crispin Pailing brought together the leaders of each faith’s community to strengthen ties.

Both communities seem eager to settle any differences, with Max Marcus, chair of the Merseyside Jewish Representative Council, saying: “We, the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities, are united in our commitment to ongoing interfaith work, as we know that with dedication we can continue to live and work in harmony as we have done, here on Merseyside, for generations.”
