Silk Road Cultural Diplomacy, a program of the Muslim Educational Trust, presents:
In memory of our beloved Brother the late Dr. Nohad Toulan

We Refuse to Be Enemies
An Evening of Music, Conversation and Friendship

Sunday, May 21st, 2017 | 4:00 – 8:00pm

Congregation Neveh Shalom
2900 SW Peaceful Lane, Portland, Oregon

We will break bread together

We are continuing our new series devoted to bringing together communities of people who, due to the accidents of history or modernity, are sometimes viewed suspiciously. We reject those definitions. Instead, we share our stories, our music and our food. These heal us. They unite us and forge friendship from distrust. They build a better society. They make us responsible for one another.

Won’t you join us for this highly humanizing evening?
