Blasting for peace

World Religion Day observed in Regina

Representatives from 12 faith traditions gathered in Regina's Beth Jacob Synagogue Jan. 15, each to pray in their own language for peace, brotherhood, understanding and tolerance in recognition of World Religion Day.

World Religion Day was established in 1960 by the U.S. Baha'i community and has since spread around the world. The Regina Multifaith Forum each year organizes the event and Beth Jacob each year agrees to host it.

Aarti Goyal of the Hindu Community signals the start of World Religion Day observances with a long blast on the Sankh, a conch shell used in traditional Hindu ceremonies.
