Hymn of the Majestic - Jewish Mysticism in Islamic Persia: An Illuminated Lecture

Thursday, July 11, 2024, 7 - 9 PM

at The Philosophical Research Society

How did Jews in Persia participate in Sufism before and after the appearance of Kabbalah? Is Sufism a fundamentally Islamic form of mysticism? And what Sufi influences are still tangible in the practices of Persian Jews today?  In this illuminated lecture, Alan Niku will seek to answer these questions while actors from theatre dybbuk read poetry that brings the topics discussed vividly to life. Live music will be featured as part of the event.

Tickets are $10.

The Merchant of Venice (Annotated), or

In Sooth I Know Not Why I Am So Sad

Bringing together elements of William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice with Elizabethan history and news from the 21st century, The Merchant of Venice (Annotated), or In Sooth I Know Not Why I Am So Sad takes a kaleidoscopic view of the ways in which members of a society displace their fears on the "other" during times of upheaval.
