Opening Our Eyes to Each Other

On Thursday March 14th Holland House hosted a wonderful day in collaboration with Worcestershire Interfaith Forum, where people of many different faith traditions listened to explanations of  the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi , and the Jewish festival of Pesach. Given the tragic events that unfolded in New Zealand just hours after this event finished, it seems initiatives such as this are all the more important. We stand together and honour one another’s traditions, including the right to hold festivals, gather for worship, build sacred buildings and wear symbolic clothing.
