All temple members and their guests are invited to join us for an evening celebrating our commitment to our friends in the Muslim American community. First, Muslim scholar and educator Dr. Hussein Rashid will address the congregation at Sabbath services about his experience of being Muslim in America. Then, at 8 PM in I.M. Wise Hall, we will host a festive Iftar, the break-fast meal during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. (Please note: The Iftar begins later in the evening because break-fast occurs after sundown. Programming to be held after services and before the Iftar will be announced soon.)

He has a bachelor’s degree from Columbia Univeristy and both a master of theological studies and doctorate from Harvard University. His research focuses on Muslims and American popular culture.
