Silk Road Cultural Diplomacy*
In memory of our beloved Brother the late Dr. Nohad Toulan
Sunday, May 21th, 2017 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

We Refuse to Be Enemies - Part 2
An Evening of Music, Conversation and Friendship
We will break bread together

Congregation Neveh Shalom 2900 SW Peaceful Lane Portland, Oregon

We are continuing our new series devoted to bringing together communities of people who, due to the accidents of history or modernity, are sometimes viewed suspiciously. We reject those definitions. Instead, we share our stories, our music and our food. These heal us. They unite us and forge friendship from distrust. They build a better society. They make us responsible for one another.

Won't you join us for this highly humanizing evening?
