"This year, in a rare coincidence, both Ashura and Yom Kippur fall on the same day: September 30th.
These Muslim and Jewish holidays mark each tradition’s new year and provide opportunities for deep reflection and renewal."
(Justice atop City Hall)
"On this day of sacred convergence, Muslims, Jews, allied faith communities, and civic leaders will gather in lower Manhattan with a powerful message of unity. With song and prayer and in solidarity with the March for Racial Justice in Washington D.C., we will rise up together for a city, country, and world of justice and peace."

 We sang, swayed and meditated.
 Two Shofars announced the end of the Ceremonies
 Some folks were returning to LAB-SCHUL at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center-199 Chambers Street for the closing service and meditation....
...but I headed homeward.
The weather turned Cold.
