Ambassador hosts Amish representatives

December 15, 2009

Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. Adel A. Al-Jubeir hosted a lunch at the Embassy in Washington on December 10 for members of the Weavertown Amish community of Pennsylvania.

Last September, residents of Weavertown invited twelve Saudi professors from the Imam Mohammed bin Saud University in Riyadh into their homes for dinner and a religious-themed discussion.

The exchanges are part of the Interfaith Dialogue Program sponsored by Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
