TROY, Mich. -- The Muslim Observer and the American Jewish Committee together hosted seven prominent journalists during their visit to America and the Detroit area from countries scattered across Asia May 21 in Troy.

The event was an opportunity for the journalists, who represent prominent news agencies in their own countries, to meet local American Muslim reporters and an opportunity for the American Jewish Committee to demystify Judaism for journalists, some of whom may never have been exposed to any aspect of Jewish culture or religious thought.
