Teens give Islamic center, synagogue a makeover

Two religious groups came together in the South Bronx to learn the value of shared space and working together with other religious cultures.



About 50 Jewish and Muslim teens gave a makeover to the Islamic Cultural Center on Westchester Avenue.



When their work is complete, the center will serve as both a synagogue and mosque.



Students from Queens College and Manhattan College also took part in the cleanup.
