Welcome to Nisa-Nashim
Nisa–Nashim is a national network, bringing Jewish and Muslim women together to inspire and lead social change. We create positive experiences for, and understanding about, people from different backgrounds – particularly Jews and Muslims. Our local groups, coupled with our strategic partnerships, provide a unique voice when advising government bodies, policymakers and others, on how to promote social cohesion. We believe in; the ability of women to build cohesion and positive change, the positive contribution of the faith groups, the corrosive nature of prejudice against ‘Outsider’ groups, and celebrating similarity whilst recognising difference.

Women can go back and influence their partners and their children… it is a key way to change attitudes
