Hummus & Happiness

November 5, 2018

6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Krannert Hall, Indiana Interchurch Center 1100 W. 42nd St. Indianapolis IN 46208

Free

Varying cultures, religions, and nationalities come together to celebrate one important food: hummus!

Hummus! The Movie features a hard working Muslim woman from Akko, an optimistic Jew from Yokne’am, and an entrepreneurial Christian Arab from Ramla, all on a quest for meaning. Despite their historical, cultural, and religious differences, they all have one thing in common . . . a love of hummus!

After viewing this fun and poignant documentary, guests are invited to sample hummus recipes from around the world. Our local hummus-makers will be encouraged to share their narrative and the story of their recipe. This event invites you to sit with friends and strangers; talk about the history of hummus; learn how it is embraced throughout the region; and explore how Israelis, Arabs, and Palestinians who may be Jewish, Muslim, or Christian connect to this delicious food.

We encourage our audience to consider how complex issues and diverse viewpoints can be explored and how the power of food can create spaces for new connections.

Free parking at the venue. Use the main doors facing the parking lot.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVP’s encouraged by Nov. 4 at spiritandplace.org.

Presented by CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center, Muslim Alliance of Indiana, Jewish Community Relations Council,  and the Center for Interfaith Cooperation.
