Earlier this week marked the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tamuz, a traditional fasting day commemorating when the Babylonians breached the walls of Jerusalem in 586 BCE and the destruction of the Temple began.  Fasting is a religious expression of grief, a demonstration of protest, and a spiritual turning toward God.  This year, thousands of people decided to fast on the 17th of Tamuz to recognize the contemporary destruction taking place in Israel, as well.  This fast, part of a global initiative called "Choose Life," was dedicated to peace and compassion.  It was observed by both Jews and Muslims, in Israel, in the West Bank and Gaza, and all over the world.  When the day ended, some Jewish and Muslim groups came together to break bread as a single community and pray for peace.  I was moved by such an example of interfaith unity and understanding.
