Loyola’s Hillel to Host 2010 Café Finjan and Inter-Faith Discussion Events
Unique Events to Foster Dialogue between Jewish and Muslim Communities

What:
Loyola University Chicago’s Jewish student organization Hillel, The Muslim Students Association, and the Department of Fine and Performing Arts are joining together to host Café Finjan, a series of interfaith art exchanges, as part of the Jewish-Muslim Community Building Initiative. The series will feature performing artists, visual arts, poetry and scripture readings, and interactive audience participation. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with diverse groups of people representing all sides of the important issues surrounding Jewish-Muslim relations.

Additionally, every Monday in February, starting Monday, February 1, Hillel will host the group discussion session “Crossing the Line: Confronting Conflict & Building Community.” This discussion series provides the opportunity for open and honest dialogue between participants, and strives to advance the commonalities between seemingly two different groups. Discussion topics include: stereotyping, homeland, media & conflict, and holy cities.
