On Sunday, Oct. 12, leaders of religions and communities in Uruguay gathered in Montevideo Cathedral to share a common message of peace and coexistence.
The keynote speaker was Montevideo Archbishop Daniel Sturla, leader of the Catholic Church in Uruguay, who said:
"Religious communities coexist in Uruguay, in harmony and mutual respect, and we all are building the country of today and tomorrow. Unfortunately, we can always find in some human hearts the will of discrimination and intolerance, to pay no respect to others. It is our duty to face these evils and overcome them building peace."
B'nai B'rith attended the event and was represented by Pres. Morris Segal, Chair of Interfaith Commission Ana Wilenski, Chair of Culture Commission Perla Lapchik and International Director of Latin American Affairs Eduardo Kohn.
