Nepal Earthquake Interfaith eventOn Friday morning, 1 May, Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner addressed a gathering of interfaith leaders encouraging help for those suffering as a result of the earthquake in Nepal.

Speaking at the East London Mosque Rabbi Janner-Klausner explained that the ground never feels the same after an earthquake like this, that wrecks so many lives. “Our role is to help people feel grounded again”.

Alongside the head of Islamic Relief, the Muslim Council of Britain and a representative from the Westminster Diocese, she also spoke of the resilient, yet gentle, nature of the Nepalese people.

The disaster, which began on 25th April, has already cost an estimated 7000 lives, with many more left homeless.More than £6000 was raised that evening at Friday prayers.
