  1. Very nice interview! Lovely photo images of the Baha'i Holy Shrines in Akka and Haifa and the beautiful Baha'i gardens on Mt. Carmel. 🙂

  2. It's wonderful that this was shared on an American national network. The photography did justice to The Baha'i World Centre.

  3. Having had the wonderful opportunity to visit Haifa and Acca twice in the last ten years, I can truly attest to the beauty & peacefulness; the Mt Carmel Gardens with melodies from a variety of birds; plants, flowers and trees representing different regions of the world; the diversity of global cultures; the architecture and fantastic art; and especially the manifestation of love and collaborative efforts demonstrated by folks from diverse religious beliefs. Difficult to leave. Mil Gracias

  4. Thank you posting the video but please change the credit to WNBC-TV Channel 4 New York, "Sunday Today in New York" is the correct name of the program. It is always important and polite to request permission to re;post copyrighted material.
