Hamid Houseni to Discuss Muslim Life in March 18 Presentation
03.12.14 |
Lebanon Valley College will host Hamid Housni, a leader at the Lebanon Valley Mosque in Lebanon, to explore how Islamic faith touches all aspects of the daily life of a faithful Muslim, impacting how they eat, sleep, pray, study, work and interact. The event, to be held on Tuesday, March 18 at 11 a.m. in Miller Chapel, will include a light pizza lunch and ethnic desserts.

Rev. Paul Fullmer, who serves as chaplain at Lebanon Valley College, wrote a grant for the program following a particularly well-received class session led by Mr. Housni for Fullmer's course in Comparative Scriptures. "Mr. Housni has a very enjoyable presentation style," Fullmer commented. "He engages students with openness, understanding, and a great sense of humor. His enthusiasm for his faith shines, in part, through the traditional Islamic clothing which he will wear to the March 18 presentation. We hope that members of the community come to enjoy and learn from Hamid."

When Housni is not engaged at the mosque or teaching, he works to manage the ethnic grocery store that he recently established in downtown Lebanon. Lebanon Middle Eastern and Halal Foods, located at 301 Cumberland Street in Lebanon, offers unique grocery supplies such as tahini, hummus, and a wide assortment of olive oils. The store opened in January of this year and has had a successful start despite the harsh winter season.

Desserts for the program will be provided by Lebanon Middle Eastern and Halal Foods. Participants in the program will have an opportunity to taste an assortment of cookies and small cakes such as shebakkia, briwat, and "Gazelle Horns."

The program is supported by Darrell Woomer Diversity Program Endowment at Lebanon Valley College, established in 2005 to provide support for programs that educate students and other members of the community on issues and topics related to diversity.

Although there is no cost to attend the March 18 presentation, pre-registration is appreciated. To register, call LVC's Offices of Spiritual Life at 717-867-6135 or e-mail nsmith@lvc.edu.
