Lesson 1: Introduction

The goal of this session is for participants to get to know one another and develop a basic understanding of the other's religion. The session itself should be conducted in an informal setting that will allow comfortable interactions to take place among participants. By getting to know each other on a personal level, participants can begin to see one another as individuals rather than just as "Muslims" or "Jews;" this will begin the process of breaking down stereotypes. Since facilitating personal encounters is very difficult, this lesson includes more explicit instructions on how to run the session than subsequent lessons will have.

**Prior to the session participants should be asked to bring along one item that for them symbolizes their religion.**
