Jewish Congregation To Show Film

The Jewish congregation of Mackinac Island, Kehillat Hatzav Hagadol, will show the movie, "The Third Jihad," after Friday night services August 28. Brief services will be held at 7 p.m., the film will be shown at 7:30 p.m., and there will be time for questions and discussion to follow at approximately 8:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend the free program, which will be held in the rectory next to Trinity Episcopal Church.

The film was produced by the Clarion Fund and features Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a physician and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Dr. Jasser works to promote a better understanding of the faith of Islam, the threat of Islamism, and the role of moderate Muslims in the domestic and global contest of ideas, said congregation member Robert Spitzer.

Dr. Jasser lectured on Mackinac Island last year about the work of the forum. Drs. Spitzer and Ann Silverman will answer questions and discuss the film. Call 847-0963 for additional information about the program.
