8-30-11: How We Celebrate Holy Days

August 30, 2011 at 8:15 am Leave a comment


Today, Muslims are celebrating the end of the holy month of Ramadan, Eid ul-Fitr.  In four weeks, Jews will celebrate the new year, Rosh Hashanah.  We talk with a Baltimore imam and a rabbi about how both holy days are celebrated.

Sheilah talks to Temple Oheb Shalom‘s Rabbi Steven Fink and Muslim Community Cultural Center of Baltimore‘s Imam Earl El-Amin about the similiarities between Rosh Hashanah and Eid ul-Fitr.
