Rabbi first member of Jewish clergy to receive Catholic award By The Associated Press BALTIMORE — A New York rabbi who has worked for decades to promote interfaith relations is the first member of the Jewish clergy to receive a prestigious award from the Catholic Church. Rabbi Mordecai Waxman was named Knight Commander of St. Gregory the Great, a papal honor dating to 1831 and originally given to defenders of the Papal States. Cardinal William Keeler of Baltimore, a promoter of Catholic-Jewish relations, presented the award. Head of the International Jew- ish Committee on Interreligious Consultation, Waxman led a delegation to Rome in 1987 to meet Pope John Paul II. These informal discussions, the first between a pope and Jewish representatives, had results. A Vatican document, published earlier this year, addressed anti- Semitism and the Nazi murder of European Jews in World War II. Waxman, 81, has been the spiritual leader of Temple Israel synagogue in Great Neck, N.Y., for 50 years. "I have had a brush with history," he said. "There can be no greater privilege than that." Eight-day religious festival opens today in Moroccan city By MARY CAMPBELL The Associated Press NEW YORK — Want to communicate spirituality, both culturally and traditionally? Try to make some miracles through music, says the founder of the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music. Celebrating its fifth year, the eight-day festival opens today in Fes, a north-central Moroccan city. Its founder, Faouzi Skali. of Fes, calls it the only international festival devoted to sacred music. American jazz pianist Randy Weston played at Fes in 1996 and listened to many of the concerts. "It was incredible," he recalled by telephone from Paris. "It was like we were all going through a spiritual experience, the musicians, the audience, all of us, realizing how we connected ... through music." Salina gears up for March for Jesus celebration By The Journal Staff March for Jesus, a nondenominational worship celebration for Jesus Christ, will occur in Salina beginning at 9 a.m. May 30 at Kansas Wesleyan University's Circle Drive. Participants will march along Santa Fe to East Crawford streets and continue to the east parking lot at Salina Central High School, 650 E. Crawford, for a praise and prayer rally. There also will be a picnic from noon to 5 p.m. at Oakdale Park. Music and local entertainment will be featured on the Oakdale Park State. More than one million American Christians in 700 cities are expected to participate in the march, with more than 1,000 marchers expected in Salina this year, said Rita Casanova, March for Jesus state representative. For further information, call 827-2709 or 827-9592. The experience went beyond the music halls. "You heard God's name all the time, in the streets and everywhere," he said. "The spirit was in the air." Weston cited personal and professional gains. "It affected me afterwards, to the point I have to compose some music based on what happened there. I want people to experience my experiences." And: "If we listen to each other's spiritual music, we might make a better world." This year, American opera singer Barbara Hendricks will sing spirituals. Other performers include the Irish choir Anuna, singing sacred chants; Turkish whirling dervishes dancing in trances; a Jewish cantor, and performers from across Europe and Asia offering such classical music as Byzantine or Hindustani chants. As the festival's director general, Skali promoted the idea of an international religious festival as a forum for healing after the Gulf War.

Then, Skali opted for music, which presented no language problems. "I think," he said, "we could almost do some miracle through music." To probe the soul and spirit of another culture, Skali latched on to concerts. "They went beyond the problems of words and, we feel something deeper than we can say with words. ... it was something completely universal." The concerts in Fes reverberate with efforts to recuperate from war. In 1996, the festival welcomed an orchestra from Sarajevo, filled with Serbs, Croats and Muslims. "It was the first time this orchestra came out from Bosnia after the war," Skali said. "... They made together— Christian and Muslim — music and songs, which was incredible."

He claims a personal interest in the Sufism of Muslim mystics. This is, to him, "a mystical way of spirituality in the tradition of Islam." Last year, Skali said, about 3,000 people attended concerts each day, and he expects the same this year. Hotels are already filled. Next year, he said, the festival plans two or three concerts simultaneously. Some may be in church; es and synagogues, which could accommodate small audiences. Mosques cannot be used as venue's because singing is nnt permitted. ' Performers, Skali said, include top professionals "who express the power and spirit of their religious tradition." For example, when five members of Weston's band played at the festival, they joined Ganawa musicians from West Africa who, like Weston, lived in Morocco in the late 1960s. "Even if you don't understand what they're singing," Weston said, "you respond because it's so basic and beautiful." TRINITY LUTHERAN Missouri Synod West Crawford at 9th & 10th Streets Rev.
