Annual Atlantic Iftar Dinners
Join us to share the story of Ramadan! Ramadan is the ninth month on the Islamic calendar and Muslims fast from dawn to dusk each day. The fast is for all Muslims who are physically able to abstain from food and drink as well as impure thoughts and actions. This year Ramadan begins on June 6th depending on the moon sighting.
This is an important time not only for those who participate in Ramadan because of their faith, but also it is an important time for practicing Muslims to share their tradition with friends from different backgrounds over delicious food and through lively conversation. It is truly a special time when people of all backgrounds come together and share in the Iftar experience, learning about different cultures and faiths in the process.
As dusk fell, Muslims sat at tables with members of other religious groups and shared their traditions over a delicous feast of traditional dishes.
It is our hope to be able to host you during this special time.
