Lesson 9 - Pilgrimage

One of the five pillars of Islam, incumbent upon all Muslims who are physically and financially able, is to make a pilgrimage, or hajj (literally "to set out for a place"), to Mecca. Historically Jews also made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem three times a year during the holidays of Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot. In exploring these traditions and the importance they hold for Muslims and Jews today, we can come to a greater understanding of the importance of these practices for Jews and Muslims.
