On the last day of 2017 the representatives of religious leaders of the Negev met in Beer Sheva church.

Two Jewish rabbis (Michael Graetz and Dikla Druckman), a Muslim shaykh (Khalil Albaz) and a Catholic priest (fr. Piotr) spoke about the meaning of "Peace" in their religions. There was also a time for questions from the public. At the end of the meeting all were invited to pray for the rain, since this yearthere is a threat of droughtJewish, Muslim and Christian prayers were said with a lot of faith and devotion and surprisingly the very next day Beer Sheva was blessed by a quite huge amount of rain that watered the earth. This is a good presage for the New Year.

Happy 2018 from the Negev!
