Over 200 Join CAIR-Chicago and Friends for Café Finjan


Feature 261 Over 200 Chicagoans joined Café Finjan this Thursday, August 21st for a night of Muslim and Jewish interfaith performances and discussion. Café Finjan is a series of interfaith arts exchanges, begun in 2004 by the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA) as part of its Jewish-Muslim Community-Building Initiative.

"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.

The event featured 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 and was featured in the Huffington Post and Trib Local.

It was co-sponsored by American Muslims for Activism and Learning (AMAL), Chicago Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago), haZula Jewish Meetup, Inner-city Muslim Action Network (IMAN), interfaith youth Core (IFYC), Jewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA), Jewish Caucus Public Action for Change Today (JPACT), the Muslim Bar Association of Chicago (MBA), Student Pluralism Interfaith Network (SPIN), and United Muslims Moving Ahead (UMMA) at DePaul University.
