Then They Came For Me   Bahari

An Evening With

MAZIAR BAHARI

As you likely know, Daily Show Host Jon Stewart has been away all summer directing a soon-to-be major motion picture called Rosewater, starring actor Gael Garcia Bernal and actress Shohreh Aghadashloo. The movie tells the story of Iranian-Canadian journalist, Maziar Bahari, who was working as a reporter for Newsweek magazine covering the 2009 presidential elections in Iran, when he was arrested and accused of being a spy. His riveting memoir is a story of extreme courage and inspiration in the face of repression against a backdrop of contemporary Iran. 

Don’t take our word for it!  Let Daily Show Host Jon Stewart tell you why you want to come to the Voices of Inspiration Benefit. Go to http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/mon-november-30-2009/maziar-bahari.

Please join us on October 12, 2013, as our congregation will hear Bahari’s story, and we will tell one of our own. We’ll hear firsthand the story of Bahari and his family, of their love, captivity and survival and in doing so, we’ll tell the story of a synagogue finding unlikely inspiration in the story of an Iranian journalist, filmmaker and human rights activist…the story of a congregation daring to discuss real and painful subjects and how they affect a future that concerns us all.
