Meet your Muslim Neighbor

The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh and Thomas Merton Center

Anti-Muslim hysteria has engulfed the media as of late, distorting facts and encouraging rampant misunderstanding about Islam. It is important now more than ever for us to show compassion for our Muslim neighbors and help stop the spread of intolerance. The Thomas Merton Center and Islamic Center of Pittsburgh have teamed up to create a potluck dinner to do just that. This is a great opportunity for people of all faiths to come together and show solidarity with Pittsburgh’s Muslim community!

"Understanding the Current Palestinian Revolt: Its Context and Consequences for Palestinian Society"

Thursday, February 18, 2016 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Since the fall of 2015 the world has witnessed a deadly spate of attacks on Palestinians by Israeli soldiers, police, and settlers, with over 160 Palestinians killed. The violence began with tensions at Al Aqsa mosque and spread quickly beyond East Jerusalem to the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel as soldiers employed shoot-to-kill tactics, claiming that their assailants, many of them youth at checkpoints, were threatening them with knife attacks.

Of Many, Film Screening and Talk-Back

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm
Porter Hall 100 Auditorium

We hope you will join us for a showing of the inspiring short film Of Many, a movie that focuses on the surprising and transformative relationship between Rabbi Yehuda Sarna and Imam Khalid Latif, who serve as university chaplains at New York University. The film is set against the dramatic backdrop of violence in the Middle East and the tension between Jewish and Muslim students on college campuses.
