Religion often causes wars -- can it also help make peace? Professor Tudor Parfitt will examine the risks and dangers in a lecture at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 22, at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU.
Parfitt, an expert in both religion and current events, will help us understand how religion -- both Jewish and Islamic -- has affected the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. He will show how some leaders on both sides of the conflict have carefully chosen texts and traditions that fit their purposes.
He will also examine the general role of religion in conflict. Can religion help resolve them? Or does it only make dissensions worse?
Tudor Parfitt is a professor of Sephardic-Mizrahi studies at FIU. He is also a distinguished professor at FIU's School of International and Public Affairs. His talk is part of the university's Mondays at the Museum lecture series.
The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is at 301 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. All the Monday events are $10 for the public, $5 for museum members, free for students with ID. Series tickets are $150 for the public, $75 for museum members, for the twenty-some programs.
For tickets or information, e-mail the museum at email@example.com or call 786-972-3175.

Help deliver on our commitment to seniors and others in need by delivering food baskets this Rosh Hashanah!
Over 600 seniors, including the disabled and homebound, are looking forward to their basket filled with holiday foods, plus a special ‘spring green’ plant in pots hand decorated by the children. That’s why Jewish Community Services is asking volunteers to make deliveries — as well as memories — by spending a little time visiting with the seniors.

- 10:30-11:15 a.m. Delivery to Seniors
- Starting at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, 4200 Biscayne Blvd., Miami

Event Chairs: Hinda & David Adler
Food baskets underwritten in part by the generous donation of the Mildred Pallas Levenson Endowment Fund
