Film Focuses on Interfaith Relationships

A film that explores the lives a Muslim and Jewish leader in medieval Islamic Spain will be shown at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 10 at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in an interfaith gathering for all faith communities.

The screening of the documentary, “Out of Cordoba: Averroes and Maimonides in Their Time and Ours,” reflects on contemporary interfaith relations between Muslims, Jews, and Christians, and modern day religious extremism and xenophobia.

A discussion with director Jacob Bender will follow the screening at the church,
