Sept. 8, 2006

Baylor University's Center for Jewish Studies will host "September 11th...Five Years After" at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11, in the Alexander Reading Room on campus. The event will feature a panel discussion by Dr. Marc Ellis, director of the center, and three speakers with Islamic backgrounds.

"September 11th is a very important marker in American history and also around the world," Ellis said. "On the fifth anniversary, it is important to reflect on what happened on September 11th but also what has happened since from a variety of perspectives, including perspectives of Americans of Islamic background, Jewish and Christian backgrounds as well. We are gathering to reflect on the anniversary, what it has meant, but also about the future. What can September 11th mean to us as we move on in time."

Participating will be Sheikh Zoubir, Iman of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston's Southeast Mosque; Adeel Zeb, communications director of the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); and Baylor student Nohayia Javed.

The event is free and open to the public.
