Who better to educate Americans than about Islam than a southern California girl who grew up to be a lawyer, scholar and writer on the subject?
Sumbul Ali-Karamali will be speaking at Ner Shalom Sunday afternoon from 3-4:40. The event is free and open to the public, but with limited seating, advance reservations are required. Her local appearance is being sponsored by the New School at Commonweal, and co-sponsored by the “Of One Soul” campaign of the Interfaith Council of Sonoma County. Reb Irwin Keller says her message is consistent with the high level of tolerance to be found locally, but still needs to be heard and shared.
Ali-Karamali holds the mainstream media responsible for much of the widespread misinformation about Islam in America today, including the heightened emphasis on the schism between Sunni and Shiite Muslims.
