On November 27, 2001, The Baltimore Sun reported that "since the terrorist attacks Sept. 11, interfaith exchanges have been on the rise, with many Baltimore-area Christians and Jews trying to increase their understanding of Islam as mosques have begun opening their doors to visitors. Those encounters continue this week as the Institute for Christian & Jewish Studies holds a free session, 'Islam and the Jewish/Christian Encounter'... And on Saturday, the Islamic Society of Baltimore, which runs the area's largest mosque, Masjid Al-Rahmah in Woodlawn, plans to hold its second open house since Sept. 11. Its program, 'Ramadan, an Explanation,' will present the history and benefits of fasting within the Islamic, Jewish and Christian traditions."
