BOSTON,MA–The huge snow storms in Boston in the past month have been very for difficult for its citizens. The interfaith clergy usually organizes prayer services. But in current circumstances that was impossible. So they created a home made video message to comfort the people. The video featuring Christian, Muslim, and Jewish leaders urges the people to find comfort in each other.
“We are in this together,” say the faith leaders in video clips, standing amid snowdrifts and icicles outside their houses of worship. “We have each other . . . to tend and befriend, with an errand, with a casserole, with a phone call, with a prayer.”
Suzan M. El-Rayess, director of development at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center in Roxbury, and Imam Ismail Fenni of the Islamic Society of Boston in Cambridge are featured in the video.
