We are All Sons of Adam...and other Stories from Morocco
Between idealized portraits of Jewish-Muslim civility in Morocco and presumptions about primordial religious antagonisms which shape the sociopolitical scene in the Middle East there lies a much more nuanced reality. Rather than searching for an elusive master key in understanding interactions between Jews and Muslims, Dr. Kosansky will explore some of the diverse processes which continue to characterize religious co-existence in Morocco.
This event is co-sponsored with the Institute for Judaic Studies and is a part of the Portland Jewish Book Month.
