Help us show solidarity and support for a community (much like our own) that is often subjected to intolerance and hate. On this first night of Chanukah and on the Eve of Christmas, voices of love, joy, harmony and compassion will ring out from every soul and every heart.
Our program will combine the messages of Chanukah (hope, light, miracles and freedom of religion) with the spirit of the Christmas (love, hope and salvation) to strengthen the relationship between the Jewish and Muslim communities. Our event is taking place at the Hilton Americas as one of the programs being offered at an annual Muslim educational convention.
Come hungry. Latkes, egg rolls, samosas and other seasonal delicacies will warm our spirits as we explore ways in which we can be a blessing to each other in times that feel threatening. This year we need everyone who is available and interested to participate. Our Muslim friends are anticipating a very large turnout and we hope to do the same.
This year Congregation Beth Israel is a co-sponsor as we continue to expand the participation of the broader Jewish Community. Enlist your Jewish friends in this important mitzvah to promote love and friendship in the world. RSVP today, so we can anticipate how many will be participating.The Seventh Annual Jewish / Muslim Christmas
