On March 29, 2004 The Miami Herald ran an article from The Record that reported, "About 600 people gathered Sunday afternoon for the 18th annual Interfaith Brotherhood-Sisterhood Brunch to recognize and embrace the diversity of people and religions found in North Jersey. The ballroom in the Marriott Glenpointe was a sea of turbans, skullcaps, saris, white collars on black shirts, and hijabs mixed with business suits and conservative dresses. Many of the religious leaders and lay people from Baha'i, Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Jain, Jewish, and Sikh faiths attending the event wore their traditional clothing and ate their customary food...Hosted this year by the Darul Islah Muslim Community of Bergen County with the American Muslim Union, the event provided four types of meals -- traditional, vegetarian, kosher, and halal -- to respect the cultural and religious traditions of the guests."
