10:00 AM Talk: Jewish Muslim Romance Films For decades, Jewish-Christian love stories have challenge—or exalted—the romantic ideal that love can transcend cultural or religious differences. Today, the cinematic trope of the unlikely Jewish-Christian couple has been supplanted by that of the Jewish-Muslim couple. Dr. Baron's lecture compares and contrasts four star-crossed lover plot lines to either affirm or discredit generalizations about the intractability of Israeli-Palestinian and Muslim-Jewish relations. The presentation will include clips from contemporary films including David and Fatima and Don't Mess with the Zohan.

Admission/Cost: $20

Location:
Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center
4126 Executive Drive

Wednesday, May 23 - 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

6:00 PM Discussion: Ukraine: Russian Interference The Eagle and the Trident: The Past & Future of US-Ukraine Relations features a talk by Ambassador Steven Pifer, an expert on Ukraine, Russia and the former Soviet states. Since the collapse of the USSR, no post-Soviet state other than Russia has commanded more attention from American policymakers than Ukraine. Steven Pifer will discuss the history of U.S.-Ukraine relations, what worked and did not work in America's approach, and how Washington might more effectively promote its goal of helping Ukraine become a stable, independent, democratic state.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $15
