2014 Atlantic Family Iftar Dinners
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 Ramadan. This year we are organizing the iftaar dinners partnering with other local sponsors and partners around Metro Atlanta.
This year Ramadan is going to begin around June 28 depending on the moon sighting. We will begin offering the Iftar dinners every day from July 8-23. If you attended our Iftar dinners in previous years, you are more than welcome to attend again, as many of our guests do so.
It is our hope to be able to host you during this special time. We look forward to hearing back from you!
Please contact us for any questions or concerns.
Note: Fasting is not required for guests.
