      Dear friends,

       

      Please find below the latest story of encounter from our Natanya-Qalansawa Interfaith Encounter. After a long break the group resumed its activity and we are very grateful to Neme and Moriya for that and wish them much fruitfulness in their activity. If you live in the area you are most welcome to join the activities of this group.

       

      I would like to take this opportunity and wish all our Muslim friends Eid el-Fitr Mubarak!

       

      Yours,

       

      Yehuda

      On Wednesday, October the 26th, an encounter took place at the Ghazawi Family home. The encounter focused on the Month of Ramadan and the Tishrei Jewish Holidays.

      During the encounter every one of the participants, from both communities, shared his or her way of life during their holy days. In addition, Avi Robinson made a remarkable comparison between the Muslim customs in the days of the Month of Ramadan and the Jewish customs in the Month of Tishrei.

      There were many surprises as members of both communities learned to know how high the level of similarity between the two religions is.

      The encounter was very interesting with a lot of will to know more about the other.

       

      Many thanks to Neme who hosted us in her home in a wonderful warm atmosphere.

       

      With the will of God, the next encounter will deal with the status of women in the different religions and how can women come closer through religion.

       

      Wishing good year to all,

       

      Neme Ghazawi and Moriya Bar Ilan

       

       

       

      ביום רביעי 26/10 התקיים מפגש בקלנסווה בבית משפחת אלרזו'י. המפגש התמקד בימי חודש הרמאדן וחגי תשרי.
      במפגש כל אחד מהנוכחים, משתי הקהילות, סיפר על אורח החיים שבו הוא נוהג בימים החשובים שלו. כמו כן אבי רובנזון ערך השואה מדהימה בין המנהגים של העם המוסלמי בימי חודש הרמאדן ובין המנהגים של העם היהודי
      בחודש תשרי .
      היו הרבה הפתעות מכיוון שבני שתי הקהילות נוכחו לדעת את רמת הדברים הזהים שבין הדתות.
      המפגש היה מעניין עם הרבה רצון לדעת עוד אחד על השני.
      .
      תודה גדולה לנעמה שאירחה אותנו בביתם באוירה חמה וטבה.

      בע"ה המפגש הבא יעסוק בנושא מעמד האישה בדתות השונות ואיך אפשר לקרב את הנשים ע"י הדת.

      תודה ושנה טובה לכולם
      נעמה אלרזו'י
      ומוריה בר אילן
