Following the lead of labor unions, some religious organizations joined the Wall Street protests this weekend.
There were two religious gatherings at the protesters' headquarters in Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan on Sunday featuring Christian, Jewish and Muslim clergy. On Friday, there was a Kol Nidrei Service marking Yom Kippur.
Reverend Michael Ellick, of Judson Memorial Church, led a rally of several hundred people on Sunday.
"It's the foundation of our scriptural principles, to look after our neighbors," Ellick said.
The protests, he said, were motivating clergy across the country.
"Every city where you know there's an Occupy ... we're getting calls from faith leaders in every one of those cities, who want to be a part of it. Who want to know what's happening," said Ellick. "And that's who's driving this movement right now."
