Showing of film "Of Many"

Showing of film "Of Many"

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 - 7:00 pm

A showing of the film "Of Many" will serve as a conversation starter and ties into the Ariel Ennis Multi-Faith training which will be taught on Wednesday, Feb. 14.

Overview of the film: "Set against the dramatic backdrop of violence in the Middle East and the tension between Jewish and Muslim students on college campuses, Of Many focuses on the surprising and transformative relationship between an orthodox rabbi and imam, who serve as university chaplains in New York City. Through a series of voyages to communities struck by catastrophe, we witness young religious Jews and Muslims working together and overcoming long-standing divides. Timely and humorous, this short documentary offers an inspiring and hopeful narrative in the face of a seemingly irreconcilable conflict."
