I’ll be there with Haroon Moghul teaching at the Fawakih Program.

On a totally separate topic, I had a follow up interview with CNN on the op-ed post I wrote for them on recognizing Eid Holidays in the NYC Public School system (to read that article click here). You can check out the video by clicking here
