In wake of religious violence, American leaders celebrate interfaith success
by Raffi Wineburg
It was just hours after two Muslim terrorists entered a Jerusalem synagogue and killed four Jews at a morning prayer service, but it was a world away.
On Tuesday about 30 high-profile Muslim and Jewish scholars and leaders came together for a kosher-halal lunch (arugula salad, salmon with a fried potato on top, tiramisu for dessert) at New York's Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) to celebrate their work bridging the gaps between the two communities.
The violence in Israel wasn't mentioned, specifically. But it was felt, undoubtedly.
