Culture and Dialogue Thrive as
Al-Hewar Center Begins 6th Year

Al-Hewar Center ended the 20th century on a good note. In December, the Center celebrated its 5th anniversary with an Iftar for current members and friends of the Center hosted by Ambassador of Yemen, H.E. Abdulwahab AlHajjri. As we enter the 21st century, the Center is continuing its activities, hosting several meetings and cultural events every month.

Al-Hewar Center is a discussion forum in Vienna, Virginia (in metro Washington DC), which places an emphasis on open and respectful dialogue among Arabs from all backgrounds and beliefs, and between Arabs and others, in order to achieve deeper understanding and cooperation within the community and better relations with others.

To date, the Center has hosted over 380 meetings and special events. The Center also publishes Al-Hewar Magazine and hosts a Website in order to reach out to new generations and the entire world.

In order to continue and grow – and to fulfill its promise and purpose – the Center needs the community’s participation. All are welcome to join and participate in the Center’s lively and informative discussions. Members also receive a complimentary subscription to the magazine. People who do not live in the metro Washington area can participate by subscribing to Al-Hewar magazine, which features transcripts of many of the presentations given at the Center.

Since October, Al-Hewar Center has hosted the following events:
