Noga Kadman at the Inquiring Mind Bookstore




Nice turnout for Noga. The book signing was a big success, 
and many stayed on to ask questions. Perhaps we should
do more of these book signings.

Iran is not our enemy





We had almost 30 people at our Iran event. The scheduled speaker was ill, so we asked Pam (longtime resident of Iran) to talk about her life there. We also watched a short video of the US and Iran agreement and what it means for peace in the Middle East.

-Friday, Oct. 2, from 7 - 9 pm. PRESENTATION "Inside Iran" at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Catskills, 320 Sawkill Road, Kingston. Ann and Ahmad Shirazi (friends of Ellen, Gail, Helaine, Nic, Tarak, and many more) recently toured regions of Iran as part of a gathering of Iranians living abroad, and they will tell their stories using slides and other media. The entire world supports the Iran deal, while the US Congress debates its virtues, and AIPAC convinces Washington to send yet more weapons to Israel.
