6:00pm [6:00pm] Unity Night and film Iranian Taboo, a documentary film
Description:
“Lord, give me firmness without hardness, steadfastness without dogmatism, love without weakness.” Jim Elliot As a society, we are at the crossroads of changing time and broadening purposes. We all desire, with all our hearts, to do the right thing and to stand firm for what we believe. Be inspired to work harder for what you know is right at… Unity Night, February 4, 2017 If you wish, please bring a dish to pass and join us for our regular community meal at 6 p.m. As always, there will be good food and friendly faces. Later, around 7 p.m., join us for a documentary film about the persecution of the Bahá'ís in Iran which includes the story of the martyrdom of Dr. Sulayman Berjis, a well-known physician in Kashan, Iran. Dr. Berjis’ daughter, grandson, and granddaughters live here in Rochester and will offer their unique perspectives after the viewing. Iranian Taboo, a documentary film by the Dutch-Iranian filmmaker Reza Allamehzadeh, was selected for the 2012 Dawn Breakers International Film Festival as well as New Port Beach and Uninvited Film Festivals. The film includes never-before-seen interviews with some of the most respected Iranian scholars, authors, and politicians, speaking out about the persecution of the Iranian Bahá'ís. It clearly shows the efforts that the Iranian Bahá'í community has made to education its own young members who are barred from higher education. More about the film can be found at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2014255/ We look forward to seeing you. Steph. Unity Night is a free, family-friendly, community-building event that uses hospitality, vibrant programming, and the arts as a way to create a space for meaningful conversations. The Rochester Bahá'í Center is located at 693 East Avenue with a parking lot and entrance to the Bahá'í Center on Oxford Street. Use 186 Oxford Street for GPS directions; parking lot and entrance opposite Unity Night: a seedbed for growing a cohesive community.🌿
