An interfaith event in Northern Virginia placed a modern spin on the traditional Seder.
The Seder featured customary foods, but verses from the Bible and Quran made this Passover celebration a little different.
"There are many interfaith Seders but I am not aware of any, anywhere in the world where a mosque, a large important mosque, any mosque like the ADAMS center has actually hosted a Passover Seder," says Andrea Barron who’s with the small group, Washington Area Jews for Jewish Muslim Understanding.
The group co-hosted the Seder with the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, also known as ADAMS.
Board member Rizwan Jaka says celebrating commonality and encouraging interfaith dialogue is more important than ever.
"In the holy Quran, our religious book, it says God has created us as nations and tribes so that we may get to know one another," says Jaka. "And that respect and understanding is something that we must strive toward."
About 40 people attended the Seder at the ADAMS Center in Sterling, Va.
