“When Islam and Judaism Sang to Each Other ~ Rumi and the Sufi School of Mysticism”

Come and learn with Rabbi Aaron Bergman

Head of Judaic Studies, Frankel Jewish Academy of Metro Detroit

Co-sponsored by Cong. Beth Ahm and The Jewish Forum

Sunday, August 5 – 7:30 pm

In the Tauber Family Chapel Cong. Beth Ahm, 5075 West Maple Road, West Bloomfield, MI

There was a brief moment in history when Jews and Muslims shared a mystic and intellectual vision. Rumi, poet, scholar and aesthete, was part of that world.

Rumi was born 800 years ago, but his popularity is as great today as ever.
We will read his poetry and see how he and fellow Sufis influenced Judaism.
We will also discuss how the rise of interest in mysticism within Judaism and
Islam creates possibilities for a genuine dialogue between Muslims and Jews today.


Reservations are encouraged but not required. Walk-ins are welcome.
