CAIR-Chicago to co-host Café Finjan featuring Muslim and Jewish Artists

WHAT: CAFÉ FINJAN is a series of interfaith arts exchanges, begun in 2004 by the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs as part of its Jewish-Muslim Community-Building Initiative. Come join new and old friends for a night of comedy, music, song, and spoken word in an intimate coffeehouse setting on the edge of the West Town and Noble Square neighborhoods.

"Finjan," a word in both Arabic and Hebrew, is a metal pot for brewing coffee in the traditional Middle Eastern style, not only in the home, but also on a campfire, with comrades gathered around for warmth.

WHO: This event will be an evening of local Muslim and Jewish poets & spoken word artists, storytellers, comedians, singers, musicians, dancers, and YOU!

WHERE: Mercury Café, 1505 West Chicago Avenue. (1 block east of Ashland Avenue)

WHEN: Thursday, February 7th. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; Starts at 7 p.m.

Why: The goal of the evening is to establish points of contact and nurture a greater understanding between Jews and Muslims of Chicago by providing a forum for young and established performers, especially from these communities.

SPONSORED BY: American Muslims for Activism and Learning (AMAL), Chicago Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago), Inner-city Muslim Action Network (IMAN), Jewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA), Jewish Public Action for Change Today (JPACT), Jewish Women Initiative (JWI) and the Muslim Bar Association of Chicago (MBA)
