17th December marks the anniversary of Rumi’s death. As Rumi Friendship Association, we organised an event to remember this important scholar, philosopher and symbol of peace.
The program started with a delicious selection of Turkish food. then our volunteers performed a live sufi music. The third part of the program was a great speech by Dr Ori Soltes who teaches theology, philosophy and art history at Georgetown University. He talked about the Mysticism and Poetry of Rumi.
The night ended with friendly conversations, photo taking and discussions with the speaker.
