At Nabi Shuaib, Tomb of Jethro
Elana Rozenman Ibtisam Mahamid Siham HalabiFor World Interfaith Harmony Week we will embark on a day of healing and bonding among the women of different faiths. We will travel to Tiberias along the border with Jordan. We will visit therapeutic mineral baths to soothe and heal ourselves. We will lunch near the tripoint where the borders of Jordan, Syria, and Israel meet. We will visit a unifying Holy Site – Nabi Shuaib – the tomb of Jethro – mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the father-in-law of Moses and venerated by the Druze and Muslims — where we will be received by a Druze sheik. We will offer prayers from each religion about religious harmony and strengthen our own interfaith sisterhood.
