West Point cadets take tour of Jersey City to learn about diverse cultures



Cadets from the United States Military Academy at West Point learned about different faiths earlier this month by touring Jersey City’s diverse cultural groups.

The cadets spent time with Coptic, Jewish and Muslim groups, among others, during a three-day tour of the city for their class, “€œWinning the Peace,” which has annually brought cadets to Jersey City for over a decade.

During their April 15 visit to the Muslim Federation of New Jersey at 530 Montgomery St., cadets asked questions about Islam, ate traditional Pakistani dishes and attended a prayer session with the local Muslim community.
