Cafe Finjan 2011:
Chicago's Muslims & Jews
Share Annual Evening of Arts
     Two nights ago 17 March 2011, Cafe Finjan again provided a common, safe space to foster relationships between Jews and Muslims through art.
     At the University of Illinois - Champaign student lounge, the women and men explored their experiences as minorities, immigrants, and people of faith.
     Since 2002, Cafe Finjan continues celebrating pluralism, respect, and dignifying each other in a local, domestic context.
     Many Jewish and Muslims performing artists at Cafe Finjan have several videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/jcuajmcbi#g/a
