Ohavi Zedek Synagogue invites you to an extraordinary afternoon with scholars Imam Abdullah Antepli and Yossi Klein Halevi as they present "Across the Abyss: How a former anti-semite and a former Jewish extremist are changing the Muslim-Jewish Relationship."

While growing up in Turkey, Abdullah Antepli read anti-Semitic texts and saw Jews as evil. While growing up in Brooklyn, Yossi Klein Halevi, the son of a Holocaust survivor, was attracted to the militant politics of the Jewish far-right. Today, they run a revolutionary program, the Muslim Leadership Initiative, that is changing the way Muslims and Jews understand and relate to each other.

Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
