Hummus has the power to bring Muslims, Christians and Jews together in the Middle East, America and around the world. A Muslim woman, a Jewish man and a Christian Arab are on a restless quest for meaning. Despite their historical and cultural differences, they all have one thing in common…a passionate love of Hummus.

Why the Jews

Monday, December 3, 7:30 pm
Zinman Hall

Featuring Guest Speaker Alan Dershowitz

The stunning accomplishments of the Jews raise a question no film has dared ask before. How do they do it? Some of the world’s most prominent thinkers tackle a mystery shrouded in ignorance and prejudice. They tear back the curtain on a taboo and draw a startling link between a people’s achievements and the darkest hours in its history. Discussion with Director John Curtain and Alan Dershowitz follows the film.
