Dear Friends,

 

There has been a growing cry for a community gathering about the Gaza crisis
that calls for an end to the violence while expressing our anguish for both
the Israeli and Palestinian peoples.

 

Boston-area Muslim, Christian, and Jewish leaders have jointly written a
statement calling for a ceasefire in Gaza and expressing our desire to
demonstrate that during these most difficult of times we are prepared to
stretch our hands out to each other. The statement with initial signatures
is attached.

 

Join us for a silent INTERFAITH VIGIL to make the declaration public and
stand shoulder to shoulder with members of Boston's Muslim, Jewish, and
Christian communities. Signs (drawn from the statement) will be provided. No
other signs please.

 

INTERFAITH VIGIL 

Tuesday, January 13

5:30-6:30pm
