Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

In this time of anti-Muslim propaganda, this is a good time to learn more about Islam and Middle Eastern culture. Join us for our Sunday service where our guest speaker will be Shaykh Yassir Chadly, a professor of Islamic studies who served as the imam (spiritual leader) of a Sufi mosque in Oakland. His talk, Surfing the Waves to the Divine will discuss the Muslim practice of Sufism. We will also hear Middle Eastern music performed by Issa Nessim (vocals) and Gary Haggerty (oud). The Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists (BFUU) welcomes people of all religions, as well as the non-religious seeking to nurture spirituality.

12/02/2017 Screening of: Generation Zapped

Saturday, Dec. 2, 7:00 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

Don't miss "GENERATION ZAPPED", the important just released documentary on how to reduce wireless tech risks!
Learn the facts and how to minimize associated risks during this technological revolution.  
Today we encounter a hundred thousand times the level of radiation from wireless technologies than we did decades ago. 
Safety standards are outdated.  Prolonged exposure to Radio Frequencies (RF) affect health, from links to breast and brain cancer, to associations with infertility and genetic mutations related to autism/ADHD, to new illnesses such as Electrical Hyper-Sensitivity (EHS).  
A wifi classroom is like the inside of a microwave oven set at very low power. Children are exposed to that wifi radiation 6 hours every school day, 5 days a week. - Magda Havas, Save the Date
 
Discussion afterwards led by:
Lloyd Morgan, Senior Research Fellow, Environmental Health Trust, Retired Electronic Engineer, and
Ellen Marks, Director of the California Brain Tumor Association
Opening remarks by BFUU Social Justice Committee co-chair Phoebe Sorgen

One of the most memorable speeches from last years Democratic National Convention was given by Gold Star parent Khizr Khan. With his wife Ghazala by his side, Khan spoke about equality, sacrifice, and ideals symbolized by our US constitution.

Like many immigrants, we came to this country empty-handed. We believed in American Democracy; that with hard work and the goodness of this country, we could share in and contribute to its blessings. From his familys move from Pakistan to becoming American citizens, Khan shares his personal story of immigration, courage, and patriotism.

Khans son U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan was killed in the line of duty in Iraq and posthumously awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.

Thursday, Dec. 14, 7:00 PM- 10:00 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org


In this time of anti-Muslim propaganda, what about hearing from real Muslims who live among us? Come hear activist Ahmed Salah speak about how Islam has deeply influenced his philosophy, which is to create social change while preserving life on both sides. Ahmed Salah was one of the primary organizers of the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 where hundreds of thousands of protesters filled Tahrir Square, leading to the resignation of an oppressive president. Mr. Salah is the recipient of the Center for Justice and Accountabilitys 2013 Champion of Justice Award. There will also be live Middle Eastern music and book signing at the event. Lets listen and discuss together. The event will be held in the historic Fellowship Hall at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists (BFUU).
