President Khatami participated in Ilanot celebration with Iranian Jewish Community

Mohammad Ali Abtahi:

"On Sunday, February 8th we participated at a ceremony with President Khatami as we were invited by Yousef Abad Church and the Iranian Jewish Association.
Since it was related to Jews, it was warmly welcomed.

The ceremony was related to Ilanot celebration. This celebration which takes place every year at this certain time is the celebration of sanctification of tress and plants in the Jews religion. As a tradition that I could realize, the Jewish people use to have some fruits at that night. I can mention olive, date, grape, pomegranate, fig, grain and wheat were available there. The great rabbi was praying at them.
