When Rochel and Nasira–an orthodox Jew and a Muslim, respectively–meet at a Brooklyn school, co-workers and students expect friction. Instead, the women discover they have a shared cultural challenge, namely, the expectation that they must enter into arranged marriages. As they experience tension between their traditional cultures and the values of individual choice in contemporary America, Rochel and Masire form a special bond. Event is free to all, but donation are always appreciated. For more information: http://www.worldculture.org.
