Local Temple Hosts Unity Rally

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - People of all backgrounds came together Sunday evening to unify as one at Temple B'Nai Sholom. Rabbi Elizabeth Bahar said it is time for the walls to come down in America. The rally was a chance for people to pray and reflect.

"It's my hope by doing acts of love and kindness; by engaging with one another, that we too can pray with our feet and hands," Rabbi Bahar said.

Dozens of people came out to walk around the holy building at the rally; for some it was a time of reflection; for others like Liza Wirtz, it was symbolic of how history had transpired over the years.  Sarah Matar, 16, said America is a melting pot and just because she's a different race or religion doesn't make her not an American.

"The walk means we need to be more united than separated," Matar said.
