On September 11, 2006 The Boston Globe reported, "Several dozen worshipers -- from spiritual mystics to Hasidic Jews and members of the Church of God in Christ -- joined the Boston Chapter of the Muslim American Society yesterday to trade jokes and suggestions about coping with life in today's fearful world. Though organized on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and other US sites, the two-hour conversation was not intended to directly discuss those events. Instead, it gave those in attendance an opportunity to address difficult issues with people of other faiths, discuss differing opinions, and discover common views... Organizers hoped to get those who attended to submit essays or other writings to an interfaith anthology and to participate in an interfaith volunteer activity, such as Habitat for Humanity."
