Kazkaz is the former president of Masjid Al Noor Islamic Center and Hawkeye Community College faculty member, and Paige is a former lay leader at Sons of Jacob Synagogue. 

The pair’s session, “Religion, Netflix and Chill,” will take a closer look at the religious series “Messiah” and “Unorthodox,” both on Netflix, from an interfaith perspective. The duo will cover how the world might respond if the Messiah came again as well as the story of a Haredi Jewish woman seeking to leave her community.

Pre-registration is not required. If you enjoy the first class and decide to continue, a $40 fee is payable at the second class. Parking is available near Saemann Student Center for those entering campus via Wartburg Boulevard.
