Celebrating Peace

Jewish Detroiters participate in
Interfaith World Sabbath.

1-

T

he 13th Annual World Sabbath took
place at Greater New Mount Moriah
Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit
and its mission was to teach Metro Detroit's
diverse population that the work of building
a community of justice, equality, respect and
peace is a calling we all share, no matter what
our faith tradition might be.
The Rev. Ken Flowers, who has been very
active in interfaith initiatives and is a member
of the Interfaith Leadership Council, welcomed
this event with open arms at his church. Greater
New Mount Moriah was the perfect spot for an
interfaith event as it stands on the same location
where Orthodox Congregation Beth Moses once
stood. Noam Kimelinan, who lives in Detroit
and is an active member of the Isaac Agree
Downtown Synagogue, kicked off the World
Sabbath service with the blowing of the shofar.
This was followed by a Muslim youth from the
Muslim Center of Detroit chanting the Muslim

Call to Prayer. Prayers for Peace in many faith
traditions (Sikh, Buddhist, Baha'i, Zoroastrian,
Jewish, Native American and Quaker) were
interspersed throughout the service and were
given by youth of various ages.
The World Sabbath on Jan. 29 also featured
mime, traditional Aztec, Hindu and Jain
dances performed by children, teenagers and
young adults.
Maggid (Jewish preacher) Steve Klaper and
Brother Al Mascia were honored this year for
their work at the Song and Spirit Institute
for Peace in Berkley, which promotes greater
understanding among people of diverse
religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds
through music, art, cultural programs, dia-
logue and study.
Gail Katz, a co-founder of WISDOM
(Women's Interfaith Solutions for Dialogue
and Outreach in Metro Detroit), was chair of
the World Sabbath. ❑

The highlight of the World Sabbath every year is the "Children of Peace,"

who wave banners they created that will become an interfaith peace quilt.

Tiffany Green, cantorial soloist of
Temple Kol Ami, and Anna Brooks, a

teen songwriter and singer affiliated
with Temple Israel, sing a prayer for
peace together.
