A Prayer for Peace, NYC, Sep 11

New York Jewish Music and Heritage Festival, 2004
A Slichot Ritual for 9/11: A Prayer for Peace
The intersection of September 11th and Slichot will provide a unique opportunity to reevaluate our American experience through a Jewish lens and resituate our holiday ritual in a modern context. The program will begin with a presentation by Stephen P. Cohen on "The Future Role of the Jewish People in Western Culture," followed by Moshe Halbertal on "The Religious Roots of Terror." At midnight we will observe two minutes of silence for Slichot, September 11th, and the hope for peace. The night will end with Sulcha, a musical expression of peace with Arab and Israeli musicians.
