An interfaith statement on recent violence against worshippers in sacred spaces during major religious observances

Sadly, this year the simultaneous observance of Ramadan by Muslims and Passover by Jews was marred by violence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Western Wall, and other sacred spaces. Members of all faiths should be free to worship in peace and dignity. As interfaith partners working together as EquaSion, we acknowledge the strong ties local residents of the Abrahamic faiths have to this region of the world, and urge respect be accorded our different religious and cultural perspectives. Locally, let us seek a common ground of compassion and collectively call to preserve the sanctity of sacred spaces of worship of all faith traditions.
