Binyamin-Ramallah 7.6.19

After a long break, the group resumed its activity with new Jewish participants. At the set time, Yaki came with Yakov to the encounter place, finding Jihad, Ahmed and Ismail already waiting. By the time Yehuda came we were already immersed in acquaintance conversation – in Arabic.

 

We talked about the encounters and agreed to aim for an encounter every 1-1.5 month, with a theme selected before. In the long-run we will include also women and children but for the time we start with men and on Fridays.

 

An interesting point that came during the conversation was the disagreement in the Muslim world about the date of the Holiday. I shared about a similar disagreement in Judaism when Raban Gamliel ordered Rabbi Yehoshua to visit him with his stick and bag on the date that according to his calculation is the Day of Atonement. With heavy heart Rabbi Yehoshua accepted, in order for the authority of the religious ruling to remain accepted by all.

 

A small step with big hope.
