2015 Atlantic Family Iftar Dinners
As the Holy Month of Ramadan (Ramazan in Turkish) approaches we would like to invite you to attend an Iftar (fast breaking) Dinner with local Turkish-American host families around Tallahassee area.
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast by abstaining from consuming water or food while the sun is out. Iftar - or fast breaking - dinners take place each night once the sun sets. This is an important time not only for those who participate in Ramadan because of their faith but also an important time for us to share our tradition with our 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.
Even though we are a non-religious organization, over 90% of Turks are Muslim and we thus host Iftar dinners every year for the community during the Islamic Holy Month of Ramadan. This year we are organizing the Iftar dinners partnering with the Atlantic Institute. If you attended our Iftar dinners in previous years, you are more than welcome to attend one more time, as many of our guests do so.
We thus very much hope to be able to host you and look forward to hearing back from you! Please RSVP at your earliest convenience.
Many thanks and warm regards,
Atlantic Institute Tallahassee
P.S. Please note that fasting is not required for guests.
