Meeting Points: Manto, Metaphors, and Meal

May 31 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm

We welcome you to join Abrahamic House DC for our May Shabbat Conversation Club, where we gather for a meal to discuss issues that matter. We will delve into a favorite quote of our Muslim fellow, Daud, from Saadat Hasan Manto’s “A Tale of 1947″:”Pointing to the horizon where the sea and sky are joined, he says, ‘It is only an illusion because they can’t really meet, but isn’t it beautiful, this union which isn’t really there.'” Saadat Hasan Manto, celebrated for his bold narratives and unflinching portrayal of truth, often examined the depths of human emotions and societal taboos. During our Shabbat dinner, we will explore Manto’s short story “A Tale of 1947” and discuss how he captures the complex essence of human conflict and emotion. We look forward to an evening of meaningful conversation and community. REGISTER here.
