Abraham's Table: Fasting and Feasting

Abraham's Table: Fasting and Feasting

The Princeton Theological Center hosted an Abraham’s table with the theme “Fasting and Feasting” on May 10, 2011.  Rabbi Adam Feldman, Sohaib Sultan and Sr. Miriam Macgillis shared their perspectives about the topic. They informed the guests about fasting and why we do it from their own religious perspectives.

Rabbi Adam Feldman began by thanking the sponsors: Fellowship in Prayer and the Interfaith Dialog Center and also Dr. Joy Ohayia, who was the moderator of the event.  He started by saying “That we Jews love food. He talked about the special foods that are used on the holidays; and also talked about the rules and regulations of the Jewish religion during fasting. A full-day fast begins with sunset in the evening and continues through darkness of the next day. A minor fast day begins with the dawn and concludes at darkness. Fasting is claimed to influence God to act Graciously toward Israel. He talked about “Yom Kippur” which is a twenty-four-hour fast, with total abstinence from food and drink, the traditional worshippers spend the entire day in prayer. The fast is a spiritual cleansing, both on an individual and communal level.
