Jewish, Christian communities celebrate in Lagos

Christian leaders joined their Jewish counterparts recently in Lagos to celebrate the New Year of the latter.

The celebration afforded the two communities the opportunity to strengthen their bonds and harness their potentials.

Executive Director of #IStandWithIsrael, Pastor Rex Ajenifuja, said the celebration was historic and significant.

Three Orthodox Jewish Rabbis graced the occasion, the first-ever in Africa.

The celebration known as The Feast of Trumpet was marked with eating of apple and honey.

The Jewish group also presented awards of recognition to Lagos State Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) chairman, Bishop Sola Ore and others called Friends of Israel.
