5 pm Israel time (GMT + 3)

What is the relationship of Ramadan with the counting of the Omer? How is sacred time experienced as a journey of transformation? Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University and author Yossi Klein Halevi of the Shalom Hartman Institute explore how they experience the inner meaning of their own traditions, and how experiencing the sacred time of the other faith has deepened their own sense of God's presence.
