Interfaith clergy's mission to Rome, the Vatican, and Jerusalem by Dr. Nur Amersi

by Dr. Nur Amersi

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, AWF Board Member Nur Amersi joined other delegates at a weeklong interfaith mission at Yad Vashem's Valley of Communities, a monument carved out of bedrock to honor Jewish communities obliterated in the Holocaust.

The cold morning foreshadowed the upcoming Jerusalem snowstorm, and the leaders representing Jewish, Catholic, Protestant and Muslim denominations warmed one another with words of conciliation and prayer, countering the chilly air and the chilling images of Jewish genocide they had seen a few moments earlier at the Yad Vashem museum.
