Gaza peace vigil planned in Missoula

A group of Jewish, Muslim and Christian faith leaders in Missoula is hosting a Gaza peace vigil at the University of Montana on Sunday, Nov. 5.

The community vigil is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the University Center Theater on campus. Organizers are calling it a “quiet, contemplative and non-political event that will include prayers, meditation and music.”

The event is sponsored by Emmaus Campus Ministry, Har Shalom Congregation and University Congregational Church.
