Elijah Interfaith Institute - Praying Together in Jerusalem
Praying Together in Jerusalem held its first gathering in October, 2015 and since then we have met monthly, through all sorts of weather, through periods of unrest and through the pandemic.
Coronavirus sent us onto Zoom and that turned into a blessing. We now have, in addition to those who are privileged to be able to join us in person in Jerusalem, a community who join us from around the world. The need to hold our gatherings online also helped us refine our format, creating opportunities for great religious leaders, scholars and teachers to share their wisdom with us.
As we enter the new Jewish year, we enter a new phase for PTIJ. We will continue to offer both in-person and virtual participation in our gatherings and will continue to highlight both wisdom and prayers from different traditions. We have scheduled the next series of gatherings so that we can learn about and observe holy seasons for different religions and celebrate the richness of our diverse traditions.
We hope that you will join us, Praying Together in Jerusalem or Praying Together WITH Jerusalem.
