JNS.org – A new interfaith and spiritual gathering of Christians, Jews and Muslims will take place in Jerusalem this September.

“Amen-A House of Prayer For All Believers,” part of the 2016 Mekudeshet Festival from September 4-23, is an initiative created by the Jerusalem Season of Culture, an annual festival in Jerusalem, to bring together the world’s three major faiths “who share a belief in one God and a boundless love for Jerusalem to dialogue, study, sing and pray together in one temporary house of worship,” said a press release.

Artists, actors, musicians and media figures from around the world are expected to participate in the event.

“We will study, argue — yes, this is also allowed — and pray — together and alone. We will see if it is possible, despite all the corporeal difficulties and earthly obstacles, to create a new reality,” said Mekudeshet Artistic Director Itay Mautner.
