An interfaith Passover Seder isn't a brand new idea, but the fact that groups in Northern Virginia decided to hold one in a mosque isn't something you often see.

The All Dulles Area Muslim Society – ADAMS for short – has teamed up with Washington Area Jews for Jewish-Muslim Understanding to put on a Passover Seder in Sterling at the ADAMS Center.

Aside from celebrating the ancient holiday, organizers hope this event will allow Jews and Muslims to express their thoughts on Israeli-Palestinian peace, U.S.-Islamic relations and the Arab revolutions.

The Seder will be held Saturday, April 23 from 5 to 9 p.m.
