Thanksgiving in Abrahamic Traditions
The Second Annual Table of Abraham Dinner organized by AI-Tallahassee on July 24th, 2014. The mission of this dinner is to bring the believers of the three Abrahamic traditions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, together to strengthen the dialogue and friendship and to celebrate their shared history, values and traditions.
This event catered to 130 distinguished guests from Temple Israel, First Presbyterian Church, Maranatha Baptist Church, Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, Good Samaritan United Methodist Church, Killearn United Methodist Church and Muslim community in Tallahassee. Hence, the dinner served as a "melting pot" between Judaism, Christianity and Islamic traditions in Tallahassee.
Rabbi Jack Romberg, from Temple of Israel, Rev. Daniel Tucker, from Maranatha Babtist Church and Dr. Elvan Aktas, from Valdosta State University were our panelists. The topic of this dinner was Thanksgiving in Abrahamic Religons. Each of the panelists had explained the place of fasting in their religons.
The event was in the month of Holy Ramadan, when Muslims are supposed to fast during the whole month. Hence, after these talks, all guests broke fasting togerther with Muslim guests.
