Thousands of Jews and Muslims work together

In a display of loving solidarity, several hundred Muslims and Jews rallied together to serve hot soup to the homeless. It was a means of celebrating Mitzvah Day, a day of social action for people of different faiths. Jews and Muslims met at the East London Mosque in November to make 1,000 bowls of chicken soup.

Laura Marks, who founded Mitzvah Day, says it's about common values that underlie both religions -- the commitment to social justice. "Most of the Jews here today have never been in a mosque before, and most Muslims don't have Jewish friends. But here we are, chopping vegetables together."
