New Year 5776 and the Call to Interfaith Understanding

Emile Moatti
“As the jewish people will very soon celebrate our New Year 5776 of the hebraïc calendar, I want to tell you that i hope that we shall reach a time of full cooperation between Jews and Christians, and also Moslems, to be together witnesses of the will of the God -One of the whole mankind. I think that this hope will be made easier if we know to refer together to our common model and “father”, as it has been sometimes formerly:  I mean “Abraham”, the first Patriarch and Prophet of the Bible of Moses, who was ready to welcome any foreigner, whatever he was or believed, at the home of his family, with his wife Sarah, in order to serve him with kindness and love, in the name of the God who has been revealed to him. I think that it is the way to the real and benefit Peace we wish for the whole humanity.”
