On January 1, 2003 Rocky Mountain News reported that "a new clergy group composed of Jews, Christians and Muslims is planning its first interfaith service Sunday dedicated to 'peace and light.' The group, which says it is nonpolitical, will travel to three different worship centers in the Denver area to pray or meditate for world peace and unity. The event begins at 6 p.m. at Rodef Shalom Synagogue, then proceeds to Aurora for a 7 p.m. gathering at Mountain View Community Church, and concludes with an 8 p.m. service at the Colorado Muslim Society mosque. At each location the group will light candles to symbolize the enduring hope of peace in a world fraught with conflict and terror, said Rabbi Bernard Gerson of Rodef Shalom."
