Supported by a Maine Humanities Council Mini Grant


The University of Southern Maine hosts a screening of the film  Of Many, a documentary set against the dramatic backdrop of violence in the Middle East and the tension between Jewish and Muslim students on college campuses. Of Many focuses on the surprising and transformative relationship between Rabbi Sarna and Imam Latif, who serve as university chaplains in New York City. Through a series of voyages to communities struck by catastrophe, we witness young Jews and Muslims working together and overcoming long-standing divides. A facilitated discussion between Rabbi Sarna and Imam Latif will follow the screening. Learn more and register now
