Profile Information

My personal story:
I live with my family in the Old City of Jerusalem, on the Via Dolorosa. Our ancestors have lived here since 1616. They came from the Silk Road city of Bukhara in Central Asia.
For many years I have worked to encourage interfaith dialogue between all faiths. I believe in peace for the Holy Land. We meditatate and pray for it at our center. This continues the Sufi tradition of my family.
Sometimes I travel to Central Asia, Europe and USA, spreading the message that there can be peace in the Holy Land, and that the world has a lot to learn from our experience. I meet friends old and new, and invite them to visit us in Jerusalem.
Why I want peace:
Aziz feels that any attempt to make peace or to aid a fellow human being is considered worship to God, and any lack of respect, any act of violence, self-interest and ignorance are considered evil.
Interests and activities:
Interfaith work as an Sufi Sheik and leader of the Uzbeki community of Jerusalem.
Something you didn't know about me:
The Naqshabandi Center In Jerusalem was founded in 1616, by the Bukhari family. The family came from the town of Bukhara in Uzbekistan, in order to teach the nakshabandi Sufi meditation and to help travellers. Another target was to form a bridge of cooperation, understanding and love. The center gradually became a conference meeting ground for pilgrims. The center includes a mosque for prayer and meditation as well as a library rich with old transcripts, written by the sheiks of the quarter.
How I found mepeace.org:
through other peacemakers
What I want to achieve here:
To reach others who are also working for peace.
Do you promise to respect others and our guidelines and not spam?
Yes

Baruch dayan ha-emet - blessed be the true Judge.
Dear Sheikh Bukhari, I am so saddened to know that I will not be seeing you again as soon as I might have hoped. But I know a true Tzaddik's spiritual influence in the world only increases when it is no longer restricted by the body. Please know how much you have meant to me and to many others. Lech l'shalom, my brother.
And to all who knew and loved you...
המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים
May G!d in whom all find their place comfort you among all those who grieve for Yerushalayim, the city of two-fold peace.
Love and blessings,
-Hayyim

Your death while endeavoring to relieve the distress of others reminds us to re-dedicate ourselves to face-to-face human engagement -- listening to everyone, excluding no one. We bless your memory with the prayer that is our daily lives and relationships.
With love, Libby and Len
