Shalom Bollywood Brings Muslims and Jews Together at the Ismaili Jamatkhana in Atlanta

Shalom Bollywood Brings Muslims and Jews TogetherThree Jewish actresses who long ago helped pioneer the movie industry in India unwittingly also helped, in a precedent-shattering program Sunday, to bring Atlanta’s Jewish and Muslim communities closer together.

The actresses are long gone, but last Sunday’s showing of the documentary, “Shalom Bollywood” at an Islamic center in Norcross helped create a rare occasion for the two communities to get together for an entertaining afternoon of mutual understanding. The film also was screened at this year’s Atlanta Jewish Film Festival.

The program was introduced by Rabbi Brad Levenberg of Temple Sinai in Sandy Springs, who is also a board member of the AJFF.
