Shanah Tovah/Eid Mubarak

This year there’s a wonderful Jewish-Muslim harmonic convergence: Rosh Hashanah and Eid (the final fast of Ramadan) fall on the same day. Though I read this morning in the NY Times that it’s causing a “monotheistic traffic jam” on the streets of the Old City, I still choose take this dual observance as a sign of additional holiness in our world. May we all be worthy of this double-blessing and do what we can to live up to it…

In honor of this day, I suggest giving to any number of worthy grassroots interfaith initiatives. Here are just a few of my favorites that you might want to consider supporting:

Interfaith Youth Core, Interfaith Encounter, Mirembe Kawomera Interfaith Coffee Coop, Muslim-Jewish Peace Walk, Daughters of Abraham, Hands of Peace

Please feel free to post links to any others you would recommend…

Shanah Tovah/Eid Mubarak!
