Event Description

RSVP in advance and join us in our sukkah for a light dinner, followed by the screening of the documentary Just a Piece of Cloth and a candid conversation that explores the reasons for modesty within Muslim & Jewish communities. What do we choose to present to the world and what do we reserve for ourselves or our loved ones?

A filmmaker\\\'s talk and audience Q&A will follow.  Presented by the Osher Marin JCC. In partnership with the Women of Rodef Sholom, the Islamic Center of Mill Valley & the Islamic Center of North Marin.

ABOUT THE FILM
Just a Piece of Cloth is a 34-minute documentary that unravels stereotypes perpetuated by the mainstream media about Muslim women. The video features four San Francisco Bay Area Muslim women from diverse backgrounds as they talk about what hijab, the traditional Muslim headscarf, means to them and how it affects their daily lives. With humor, seriousness, and candor they speak from personal experience about this often controversial garment. Despite their unique stories, universal human questions lie just beneath the surface: What boundaries define me? How do I travel across those boundaries to be true to myself, my community, and my faith? How do I transform the stories that limit my potential?
