St. Louis, MO (KSDK)- Muslims and Jews unite this Christmas in 22 locations across St. Louis including the Central Reform Congregation. It was all part of a day of service.

Some people at the Central Reform Congregation were filling bags with toiletries to bring to people staying at the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital others were preparing food to bring to a homeless shelter.

More than 500 Jews and Muslims participated in the second annual event.

"I hope that our Christian brothers and sisters can sit back and have a day off knowing that we were carrying the heart of the world today that the Jews and Muslims were coming together so that they could really have their holiday," said Rabbi Susan Talve with the Central Reform Congregation.
