At the suggestion of the Very Rev James Parks Morton, Dean of the Cathedral and Honorary Chair of the Nakashima Foundation for Peace, the second altar-table, a Sacred Peace Table intended for Russia, was built in 1995 and consecrated near its twin at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, in a propitious gathering of peoples of all races, nations, and faiths, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, fulfilling another phase of George Nakashima's dream.
