The ancient synagogue in the capital of Bahrain held a prayer service this morning. Following the conference held in the kingdom, a number of government officials including Assistant to the 45th President of the USA & Special Representative for International Negotiations, and other Jewish business people and foreign rabbis who came to Manama to attend the Peace to Prosperity conference, enabling a Minyan to be held at the gates of the synagogue. Because of the small size of the community, there are almost no prayers there on a regular basis.
Greenblatt work on his Twitter page that it was a “Great way to start the day”.
A special opportunity to daven(pray) this morning with a minyan(quorum) in a synagogue in Bahrain. Great way to start today. I was asked what I prayed for- two things: my family, who I miss deeply and of course for peace. This is an example of the future we can all build together pic.twitter.com/kqHlEZyvoT
