In Arkansas, A Palestinian-American Muslim Builds A Synagogue For Free (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In late 2006 a Palestinian-born American Muslim from Springdale, Ark. reached out to help the local Jewish community build a synagogue in the heart of the Bible Belt -- at no charge.

Almost four years later, "Temple of Peace," a forthcoming documentary film by Hayot Tuychiev, chronicles Fadil Bayyari's involvement with Temple Shalom, which will be the first permanent temple for the Reform Jewish congregation of Fayetteville, Ark.
