On the day our 45th president is inaugurated - and at a moment of rising anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and fear of the other, Saviv is honored to welcome a fascinating guest speaker, a Muslim expert of Holocaust studies. Dr. Mehnaz Afridi, director of the Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center at Manhattan College and author of "Shoah Through Muslim Eyes," will describe her personal journey to reconcile the seemingly irreconcilable.
"People see the Holocaust and Islam as two separate things," she says. "But these stories of faith and catastrophe are not opposites. They are companions."
Join us at 7:00 pm for drinks, followed by services at 7:30 pm, and a reception serving America's favorite patriotic snacks.
