Lecture: Is History Repeating Itself? Jewish and Muslim Immigrant Experience
Friday, February 26, 2016 - 11:00am
It is difficult to imagine any political discussion today that does not include some mention of immigration. There are increasing concerns about border security, and ongoing debates about who we will allow in to our country and who we must keep out.
For the Jewish community, particularly among Survivors and their families, this concern feels in some way like their own history. Jewish immigrants to America at the beginning of the 1900s and up to WWII era faced many of the same types of suspicion that Muslim-Americans, particularly immigrants, face today.
In response to these concerns, the Atlantic Institute is partnering with FAU's Peace, Justice, and Human Rights initiative on this special event. Imam Abdullah Antepli, Chief Representative of Muslim Affairs at Duke University, is one of only 11 full-time Muslim chaplains on a U.S. university campus. He sees urgency around Jewish-Muslim relations in general, and in particular on college campuses.
