Unity Gathering

On December 13, 2015, the last night of Chanukah, more than 20 clergy members and their faith communities from Northern New Jersey—Jews, Christians, and Muslims—gathered at Temple Beth Or as a statement of unity. We shared songs and teachings of peace from our various faith traditions. Relationships were formed and strengthened. We stood together against the violence and anti-Muslim prejudice that are still too common in our world.
