Faiths united at Altrincham peace vigil

More than 120 people, including members from Menorah Synagogue, local orthodox shuls, and Muslim communities in the area, met in Hale in Greater Manchester for a silent vigil for peace organised by the Altrincham Interfaith Group.

“We held a dignified, uplifting, and positive period of silence as we reflected on the conflict in Israel and Gaza,” explained Menorah vice-chair Ann Angel who was also one of the co-organisers of the event.

The diverse gathering heard that hate and violence had no place within the communities involved and there was a collective feeling of uplifted spirits, and a hopeful outlook as the vigil was brought to a close.
