Denver, Sunday, November 17th.
Wisdom House Denver, Multicultural Mosaic Foundation,The Northeast Denver Islamic Center, Abrahamic Initiative, Denver Peanut Butter Plan, Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, and Congregation Rodef Shalom participated in the Annual Muslim-Jewish Twinning Weekend.
About 200 people from different religious beliefs and nationalities came together in Denver to help prepare peanut butter sandwiches for more than 2000 homeless. At the beginning of the program, Rabbi Steven Booth-Nadav emphasized the importance of intercultural/interfaith dialogue in that many problems can be solved with tolerance and dialogue. Other speakers from various different backgrounds also made similar remarks. Then, the volunteers altogether prepared packages to be distributed to the homeless people. It was a nice friendly gathering with everyone working in harmony and full of kindness towards each other. During midday prayer time, an announcement was made that Muslims will perform their prescribed afternoon prayer. Some non-Muslims sat at the back of the prayer room to watch. The program ended after the packages were distributed to the needy people.
