Join Busboys for Timely Discussion on Middle East Peace

May 21, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Join Busboys and Poets at 6pm today, May 21 for timeline virtual dinner and conversation with Sabeeha Rehman & Walter Ruby, co-authors of We Refuse To Be Enemies. How Muslims and Jews Can Make Peace, One Friendship at a Time. The book is a manifesto by two American citizens, a Muslim woman and Jewish man, concerned with the rise of intolerance and bigotry in our country. Together Rehman and Ruby have spent decades doing interfaith work and nurturing cooperation among communities. They have learned that, through face-to-face encounters, people of all backgrounds can come to know the Other as a fellow human being and turn her or him into a trusted friend. In this book, they share their experience and guidance.

Hosted by Busboys and Poets CEO and Founder Andy Shallal with a special dinner guest each week, the virtual dinner party series is a perfect way to get an intellectually stimulating start to your weekend. Order your favorite meal and beverage from Busboys and Poets, set your table, and tune in for a special dinner with some of the most influential thought leaders of our time.
