On Wednesday, March 22nd, the Bahai World Center celebrated Naw-Ruz (the New Year) with an evening designed to gracefully bridge the past, present and future. Diplomats, leading business and community leaders, and members of the Bahai community from across the globe were hosted by Bahai Representatives Mr. Joshua Lincoln ,Mr and Mrs Kern and Barbara Wisman and Mrs Sarah Vader at a festive event held at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. This special gathering provided an ideal forum to highlight Bahai values, Bahai-Israeli ties, and Bahai engagement with many other faith communities.
Guests first passed through a serene meditative space created by the artistic arrangement of greenery, colorful flowers, and earth-toned stones. We later learned that volunteers had been toiling since before daybreak to prepare this exquisite indoor mini-garden. The gentle sound of trickling water from a fountain in the center soothed and relaxed attendees as they approached the inviting main meeting area.Add a comment
