In conjunction with the Prism of Longing art exhibit and the "Peace in the House" performance at the Phipps, the program's theme explores issues of the Middle East, including the differences, connections and commonalities of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

On Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 10 to 11:30 a.m., participants will meet the artists and tour the Prism of Longing exhibit.
