The Beşiktaş Municipality held a meaningful event for both the 743rd anniversary of Rumi’s death and the Christmas celebration of our Christian citizens.
The Beşiktaş Municipality brought together the representatives of the 3 Abrahamic Religions in order to celebrate the Şeb-i Arus event, which is the ‘Reunion Night’ of the Mevlânâ Celâleddîn-i Rûmî and Christmas together on the same night.
The event took place at the Kuruçeşme Suada and was attended by the representatives of the 3 Abrahamic Religions, the Vice Mayor Rifat Örnek in representation of the Beşiktaş Mayor Atty. Murat Hazinedar, and the citizens of Istanbul.
During the night, Yedi Tepe Yedi Dil Korosu and the Cafe Aman Istanbul took the stage and songs and ballads of various cultures living together were sung. The Sema Show performed by the whirling dervishes was quite fascinating.
The representatives of the 3 Abrahamic Religions gave messages of peace, unity and fellowship during the night. The attendees expressed they were really happy that these two important religious events were held together through such a lovely organization of the Beşiktaş Municipality.
