SUDBURY, Mass. — A Muslim man is coming to a Massachusetts synagogue this weekend to explain his religion.

Haroon Moghul is scheduled to give two talks at Sudbury’s Congregation Beth El synagogue .

Saturday’s event will focus on his personal experience as an American Muslim and his work with the Jewish community. Sunday’s talk will focus on Islam itself.

Moghul, an author and fellow in Jewish-Muslim relations at the international Shalom Hartman Institute, tells The MetroWest Daily News his talks are his way of “building bridges between communities that might not know a lot about each other, and may at times be suspicious of each other or even afraid of each other.”

The talks are open to all and are a chance to “learn about the commonalities and differences between Muslims and Jews.”
