What others have done / are doing:
- Prince Charles is delaying his own wedding for one day in order to attend
- On some previous occasions, when, for example, UK Chief Rabbis have not wanted to attend Church services, they have attended and respectfully stayed outside the church.
Fact: flying time from Israel to Rome ... 2 hours? 3 hours maximum?
Question: how can we possibly ask others to respect us, when our religious leaders so manifestly make no effort to respect others????
