Sunday services at the National Cathedral today included readings from the Torah and the Quran.

It was one of dozens of services taking place all across the country today as part of the Faith Shared project.  The project is designed to help promote understanding and respect across all religions.

Today's service was led by several religious leaders from the DC area, including an Imam, a Rabbi, and a Priest.

Similar services also took place in more than 70 other churches today, in 32 different states and D.C.

This was the first year for the event and it was organized by the Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First, both based in Washington, D.C.  Founded in 1994 the Interfaith Alliance has more than 185,000 members across the country that represent 75 different faiths.

Human Rights First is a leading human rights advocacy organization. Founded in 1978, it works in the U.S. and abroad to create secure and humane justice, human dignity, and the respect for the rule of the law.
