Noah`s Pudding Interfaith Gathering
Join us for an interfaith gathering at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church in Winter Park on Sunday, January 31, 2016 to participate in a conversation and have Noah`s Pudding with one another.
The "Noah's Pudding" celebrates the common tradition of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. To celebrate the landing of Noah's Ark, every year volunteers of Atlantic Institute prepares a sweet dish called "Noah's Pudding" aka Ashure. In the Muslim prophetic tradition, the day Moses (peace be upon him) and his community were saved from the Pharaoh's army, and the day Noah's (peace be upon him) ark was saved from the flood is celebrated with fasting and in modern times with the sharing of Noah’s Pudding known as Asure. Asure is a dessert that is made of various grains, nuts, and fruits. The name itself comes from the Hebrew word “Asor” (the tenth). It is traditionally shared with friends and neighbors.
The story of Noah’s Pudding and the custom of preparing such a pudding and sharing this with neighbours and friends is a tradition and not a religious practice. However, it is a pleasant custom that is most useful for bringing people together around a commonly known story.
