Tripartite Twinning Event in Atlanta northern suburbs

Congregation Or Hadash of Sandy Springs, GA, the North Fulton Islamic Center and the Sandy Springs Christian Church took part in an event entitled “Three Faiths, One Table” that took place on Sunday Nov 4 at 5 PM at the Sandy Springs Christian Church. Rabbi Analia Bortz of Congregation Or Hadash sent the following account:

Over 200 people participated in the celebratory event at which members of the three congregations explained the different rituals, traditions and foods that characterize Jewish, Muslim and Christian sacred occasions. Participants sang together, shared the Maghrib Muslim prayer time as well as the Jewish Ma’ariv prayer, before blessing the meals and eating dinner together. It was beautiful!
