Islamic and Jewish holy times start on same day this year

On September 12th at dusk, the Islamic month of fasting, Ramadan, and the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, begin simultaneously. Also falling in the Ramadan this year is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Interfaith leaders - this could be an excellent opportunity to have Muslim and Jewish dialogues about the SPIRITUAL aspects of this time period and the shared values that these two monothestic faiths share.
