The JCC of Middlesex County, The Metuchen Edison Area Interfaith Clergy Association, Congregation Neve Shalom, Temple Emanu-El and The Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey invite you to a Screening of “STRANGER/SISTER” - A documentary by A Kirsten Kelly & Katie Taber. A Panel Discussion with the Co-Founders of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom and the Producer of the Documentary will immediately follow the Screening. The United States is experiencing a surge in hate crimes as a tide of white supremacy gathers momentum nationwide. Muslim and Jewish communities are particularly at risk. Stranger/Sister is the story of two ordinary women, one Muslim and one Jewish, who dare to believe they can join hands to stop the wave of hate. Overcoming a long history of distrust between their two religions, they build a movement that turns strangers into sisters, challenging our assumptions about how to fight hate in America. Intimately following women from chapters of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom in Austin, Chicago and across the Nation, the documentary tells the story of how the Sisters build a powerful network of hope in a time of chaos and hate. This program is being offered In-Person at the JCC of Middlesex County (1775 Oak Tree Road; Edison) AND via Zoom/Livestream. This program is FREE AND OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY AS SPACE ALLOWS. Advance Registration is Required.
