Center for Living and Learning. January 17
So, is there a parallel between Shariah and the American Constitution? You bet the discussion on Family Law is Islam was spirited. 
Book Club. January 23
This was in New Mexico, and no, I didn't fly out. Skype did it. Q: So that was the is it with the grandchildren? One response I get from all book clubs: 'We love your husband.'  I told them,"I love him too."
Center for Living and Learning. January 24
My husband and I did some role-playing at our lecture on Shia-Sunni Divide. He was the good Sunni and I played the good Shia. We debated, found a happy medium, and decided to shake hands and make-up.
The Transition Network. January 26
An interfaith dialogue led to a 'how can we support each other', and 'The Daughters of Abraham in Dialogue' was launched. We will go to Muslim events together, join one another for faith events in our living rooms and in public places, volunteer together, sign up for newsletters from Muslim organizations and hear the voices of moderation....
B'nai Jeshurun. January 28
The more interesting discussion took place after the book reading, and after the Q&A. I walked away with lunch and coffee dates. It was probably the largest audience I have spoken to. 
Book Party.  January 29
"This is my story." "This is my mother's story." Young ladies of Pakistani origin gathered in Farah's living room and the discussion soon turned into current events, and 'what can we do to make our voices heard?' We worked up a to-do list, and these young ladies are ready.

Church of St. Francis Xavier. Feb. 3.
Interfaith Harmony Week
A Conversation on Understanding, Respect, and Solidarity among Faith Religions

"You have sanctified the place," Father Sean Toole said to Sheikh Abdul Rasheed, after he performed the ceremony of Zihkr (remembrance of God).  "I shudder," said Rabbi Berkowitz, drawing parallels with the events preceding the holocaust. Many embraces followed. I am warm all over with all the hugs I got.
