On September 15, 2006 the Jewish Journal reported, "Five years and 3,000 miles from the site of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the mournful strains of calls to prayer in Hebrew and Arabic open the Islamic Center of Southern California's fourth annual commemoration of the attacks of Sept. 11. The audience, dressed in saris, suits, skirts or slacks, bareheaded, or wearing head scarves, kippahs, kufis or turbans, gathered to pray together and to honor three religious leaders, Jewish, Christian and Muslim, who were to receive Peace Awards for their continuing work toward interfaith understanding... The service continued with prayers from a Buddhist, a Catholic, a Protestant, a Muslim, a Sikh and a Baha'i, and concluded with a musical offering from representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."
