Bridging cultures for a brighter future
Dear friends,Events & News
The American Palestinian Women’s Association is hosting its 4th Annual Ramadan Gathering. We will be virtual this year and we want you to join us in a unique event that includes Rabbis, an Imam, and pastor, the historian and scholar Rose Esber, comedian Amer Zahr, Victorie Franklin, the granddaughter of Aretha Franklin, and more. All proceeds will benefit the Mar Elias refugee camp in Lebanon, which serves the Palestinian refugees of the 1948 Nakba, and more recently, Syrian refugees.
We are excited to bring you an hour of eye opening discussion on religion through the lens of Reverend Mark Brown, Rabbis Elizabeth Goldstein and Michael Davis and Imam Yahya Hendi. Dr. Rose Esber, author of “Under the Cover of War”, will give us a history of the Nakba to commemorate the saddest month in the history of Palestinians and the loss of their rights to their homeland. We bring you laughter as well with our own Palestinian American comedian Amer Zahr and finally, we will be joined by Victorie Franklin, granddaughter of the legendary Aretha Franklin who will speak about the joys and challenges of living in a family of multiple faiths.
