Interfaith Prayer Service on Ending AIDS
+ “Behold, I Make All Things New” Book Launch
Join Amichai as he helps lead an Interfaith Service on ending AIDS at the United Nations Church Center, 777 United Nations Plaza, New York City.
Next week, world leaders will meet in New York to adopt a concise and action-oriented Declaration on HIV and AIDS which will express the commitment of nations to the HIV response, and it will serve as the basis for accountability to achieving the goals for ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic by 2030.
We will start with a procession from UN square to the Chapel of the Church Center at 5:30 pm to symbolize the importance of journeying together with other faiths for a more effective global response to HIV. Faith leaders are invited to wear their religious garment.
Key note speakers include representatives from UNAIDS, the Global Fund, IATF-FBOs, WCC, INERELA+; Jewish, Muslim, Bahai’ faith and Buddhist faith leaders.
After the service, join us for the book launch (from 6:45pm) – “Behold I make all things new” published by Church of Sweden. A reception will be held at 8:30 pm to celebrate iftar, the daily breaking of the fast during the holy month of Ramadan, with our Muslim colleagues.
