Ambassador Jawad and Mrs. Jawad to Speak on Culture and History of Afghanistan

It has been over almost two months since the exhibit "Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures of the National Museum, Kabul" opened in Washington, D.C. After rave reviews in the Washington Post and New York Times, the Washington Diplomat recently asked whether seeing the exhibit was really worth it. Its answer? "A month after the exhibition opening, there remains a basic question: Is it worth seeing? The answer: Absolutely and emphatically yes."

As part of the exhibit's continuing mission to educate Americans about Afghanistan's rich cultural heritage, Afghan Ambassador to the U.S. Said T. Jawad and Mrs. Shamim Jawad will participate in a public event on Thursday, July 17 at 7 p.m. at the Historic Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, D.C. During the event, they will speak of Afghanistan's culture, arts, cuisine and history - topics that are rarely covered in the media's coverage of the country. They will be interviewed by Steve Coll, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001."

The Sixth & I Synagogue is located at 600 I Street, NW. The event is open to the public, and tickets cost $6 and can be purchased by calling 202-408-3100 or going to this website.

WHAT: Public discussion with Ambassador Said T. Jawad and Mrs. Shamim Jawad, moderated by Steve Coll.

WHEN: Thursday, July 17. 7 p.m.

WHERE: Historic Sixth & I Synagogue, 600 I Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
