The Christian Jewish Council of Greater Charleston invites you to join us for Charleston’s Second Annual Celebration of Food and Faith! The program begins with dialogue between Rabbi Michael Davies and Imam Abdel Majid, moderated by Elijah Siegler, Professor of Religious Studies at the College of Charleston. Following the moderated discussions, attendees will form breakout groups and discuss issues beyond food, including Jewish and Muslim prayer practices, pilgrimage, clothing, scripture and charity. Discussions will coincide with a sampling of traditional Jewish (Kosher) foods and Halal dishes from the Muslim world. Admission is free and all are welcome! Co-sponsored by the College of Charleston Department of Religious Studies, Yaschik/Arnold Jewish Studies Program, Jewish Student Union/Hillel and the Arabic Club from the College of Charleston.
