ABOUT THIS LEARNING EVENT…
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.

IT WILL BE PART SHIUR (LECTURE), PART POETRY READING!

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

  1. Sat Paul Goyal said,

    HANGOVER OF WILD ECSTASY

    I visted the bazar
    where you sell flowers.
    There was nothing but
    an intimate emptiness
    and a spread blanket.

    When i bowed your fragrance
    rose to me…..
    I was out of myself and
    drowsy with wild ecstasy!
