Annual IEA Iftar dinner 2019

In the first part of the Annual Iftar of the Interfaith Encounter Association, we were happy to host the monthly gathering of "Praying Together in Jerusalem". As sunset approached we gathered around the tables, nearly 130 people – participants of the interfaith encounter groups and guests, from the Holy Land and abroad. As it already became a tradition – the food was brought by our friends from Hebron, who also made sure to bring kosher food. Lively conversations among table neighbors accompanied the joint eating. We were privileged to host a special guest, Sheikh Hafiz Abdullah Muhammad from London, who also delivered short blessing for this special event. Another special aspect was the "Interfaith Encounter Band", who works for already over a year, who played for us songs in Hebrew and Arabic. Many people came forward to stress who wonderful and moving was the event for them and this was our biggest award!
