Three Jewish synagogues in Maryland are building bridges between faith communities through volunteerism, joining Muslim youth in renovating the home of a 75 year old wheelchair-bound resident of Howard County.
The Dar Al-Taqwa youth group along with the three Jewish congregations jointly contributed towards the $2500 sponsorship fee needed to purchase material and supplies for the work. And, on a recent Sunday morning, the group of around 60 volunteers commenced to work together on the project.
Ibrahim, 16, said it was a great experience. “The best part was the unity between the religions. I didn’t feel we were different. You just come to realize how much we have in common and put everything else aside.”
