This amazing scene captured by Emanuel Miller, features two young men praying – one Muslim about to bow on his prayer mat, the other a Jew with his Tefillin on.

Where in the world other than in Israel, specifically here in Jerusalem, would you be able to see this scene?!

As we say three times a day in the Aleinu prayer:

וְכָל בְּנֵי בָשר יִקְרְאוּ בִשְׁמֶךָ לְהַפְנות אֵלֶיךָ כָּל רִשְׁעֵי אָרֶץ. יַכִּירוּ וְיֵדְעוּ כָּל יושְׁבֵי תֵבֵל. כִּי לְךָ תִּכְרַע כָּל בֶּרֶךְ. תִּשָּׁבַע כָּל לָשׁון. לְפָנֶיךָ ה’ אֱ-לקינוּ יִכְרְעוּ וְיִפּלוּ. וְלִכְבוד שִׁמְךָ יְקָר יִתֵּנוּ. וִיקַבְּלוּ כֻלָּם אֶת על מַלְכוּתֶךָ. וְתִמְלךְ עֲלֵיהֶם מְהֵרָה לְעולָם וָעֶד.

And all of humankind will call with Your name, turning towards You all of the earth’s wicked. All the earth’s inhabitants will recognize and know that every knee must bow to You and every tongue swear. They will kneel and bow down before You, Hashem,  and give honor to Your esteemed name. They will all accept the yoke of Your kingdom, and soon you will reign over them forever.

A scene you won't find in too many places around the world. A religious Jew praying alongside a religious Muslim.Behind the scenes at Sushi Rehavia, in central Jerusalem.

  1. […] Wo sonst auf der Welt sieht man so etwas? Dieses Foto, das im Rückbereich eines Restaurants in Zentral-Jerusalem aufgenommen wurde, zeigt zwei betende junge Männer — einen Muslim, der sich auf seiner Gebetsmatte verneigen will, und einen Juden mit seinem Tefillin. Religiöse Toleranz und Religionsfreiheit in der heiligsten Stadt der Welt. […]
