Tom Block Reading

Friday, March 16, 7pm-8pm: Tom Block, reading from his book Shalom/Salaam.
Free and open to the public.

"Block’s historical review of the encounters of Jewish mystics with Sufi masters is as inspiring as it is fascinating, as hopeful as it is insightful. This meeting of Jewish and Muslim mystics offers a foundation for the collaboration of Jewish and Muslim activists. This is a book for both scholars and politicians. If mystics can learn from each other, we can hope that politicians might do the same."
-Paul F. Knitter, Paul Tillich Professor of Theology, World Religions and Culture - Union Theological Seminary

"Block’s evident enthusiasm for the revelation of these common roots as a way forward for Muslim-Jewish relations propels this great read." - Publishers Weekly,
