I was so excited and honored on Shabbat recently when I attended another event with an organization called Roots-Shorashim-Judur.

Concerns that Israel is Facing the Third Intifada are Put on Hold For Now

Thankfully the resounding answer to my question in my last blog, “Jerusalem 101 Part III: Friday, Will Muslim and Jewish Prayers End in Violence?” is NO.  After the weeks of violence, and the metal detectors and cameras being removed — the following Friday night, important to both Jews and Muslims passed quietly.
