12pm Noah's Pudding

Following service on Sunday, December 9th, The Dialog Institute of Dallas joins us to share an interfaith community celebration with the Unity of Dallas family, it all centers around a dish known as "Noah's Pudding."

Making Noah’s Pudding is a common practice among Muslims and Christians in the Middle East. It is believed that when Noah’s Ark came to rest on Mount Ararat in Turkey, Noah’s family celebrated with a special dish. Since their supplies were nearly exhausted, what was left was cooked together to form Ashure (Noah’s Pudding), made from a mixture of grains, fruits, and nuts
 
To commemorate the Prophet Noah, people make and distribute it to their neighbors and friends. Thus, it has become a symbol of sharing, love, peace, and compassion, and a great way to enrich and strengthen neighborliness. Sharing Noah’s Pudding is a symbolic representation of the unity and essential relationship of humans to one another and the Creator. We invite your family to join us for pudding and connection on this special day.
