Baha'Is Event In Israel To Be Telecast Worldwide

The Baha'is' of Greater Portland will join others of their faith worldwide at 7 p.m. Tuesday watching a live satellite TV broadcast in Gray as the denomination opens new terraces, formal gardens and fountains that extend from the port city of Haifa, Israel, to the summit of Mount Carmel.

This twilight ceremony, called a celebration of unity and hope for the human race, will include a concert of new music at the base of Mount Carmel and conclude with the lighting of the new terraces. At the heart of the terraces is the gold-domed shrine of the Bab, one of the most important holy places for Baha'is.

Anyone interested in attending the broadcast may call Bill Wood at 799-4558 for more information.
