Adelphi Hosts Prayer Vigil for Peace to Support Victims of Violence in Israel

On Oct. 12, faith leaders on campus held a prayer vigil for peace to support victims of violence in Israel.

Michael Hoffner, coordinator of the Mindfulness Center & Interfaith Center, who, alongside the chaplains of the Interfaith Center, hosted the event, said, “I believe it is important for us to cultivate our own inner peace so that we can offer our peace to those in need. If we are not peaceful, we will not be able to meaningfully create peace. We also need to focus on building up our capacity to be compassionate, understanding and loving. When we find ourselves in times of crisis, violence and destruction- compassion, understanding and love and the most powerful tools we have to support each other.”
