WATCH: Jews & Muslims talk about fast day they just shared

One word describing the day - two faiths describe.

“This year (similarly to last year) the most holy day of the Jews – Yom Kippur and of the Muslims -Eid al Adcha will be celebrated around the same time,” the notes accompanying the video read.

“This year, Yom Kippur falls on the same day as “Kapat Arpa” which is the day before Eid al Adcha – a day of preparation where many Muslims also fast. Together with the Community Mediation and Dialogue Centers of Jerusalem, Lod, Ramle, Acre and Haifa we have produced the attached video in order to learn more about the holidays and in order to encourage mutual respect and understanding between people of two religions, who share a common space.”
