A

mong the more than 400
participants in last
Saturday's World Sabbath
of Religious Reconciliation
interfaith service were Jews and Arabs
— in prayer together for world heal-
ing and peace.
"It was an amazing moment to see
leaders of the Islamic and Jewish com-
munities praying together for peace,
tolerance and the safety to freely prac-
tice their faith in America and in the
rest of the world," said the Rev.
Rodney Reinhart of St. Martha's
Episcopal Church in Detroit, who
founded the World Sabbath in 2000.
"This is a time when rabbis and
imams and people of the Jewish and
Muslim faiths have many difficult
bridges to cross [and] the World
Sabbath provided that bridge. Their
words provided us all with the hope
that peace, reconciliation and inter-
faith fellowship are not an impossible
dream, but a very achievable dream in
which we all must come to share."
Optimistic that the service will add

hope to promoting peace among Arabs
and Jews was Arnold Michlin of
Waterford, who was the recipient of
the World Sabbath's first Peacemaker
Award in 2000. "This program makes
me feel more confident about the situ-
ation in the Middle East," he said. "I
stand by the people-to-people method
of building bridges."
Cantor Stephen Dubov of
Congregation Chaye Olam sang
"Oseh Shalom," a song of peace, at
the Jan. 25 program. While "the event
was not specifically focused on a
Jewish-Arab quest for peace," said the
cantor, "it was a statement that we are
all humanity.
"We were all there for the same pur-
pose, to promote world peace — Jews
and non-Jews, people of all faiths,
sharing this part of world history
together. Let's find more ways we are
alike, instead of focusing on our dif-
ferences. Programs like these help
bring that ideal to the forefront."
"The day had been tense with talk
of war, of press speculation that the
tensions of the moment would spill
over into the service," said the Rev.
Edward Mullins of Christ Church
