Interfaith Iftar Dinner
Sunday, June 03, 2018, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
As part of the new “Food and Faith—Second Helpings” forum series, you’re invited to an Iftar, the dinner that breaks the daily fast during Ramadan.
Ramadan, a lunar calendar based month, is the holiest time period for Muslims of all backgrounds. As one of the five pillars of Islam, Muslims are required to fast in this month starting predawn and ending with the sunset. During this time, fasting Muslims avoid any food or liquids. This is supposed to help people appreciate food, make them more grateful, and lead them to sympathize with the needs of the less fortunate.
Come to meet our Muslim neighbors, mingle and learn, then share dinner just after sunset. Space is limited, so please contact Deborah Potter to reserve your spot. You are asked to bring a vegetarian salad or dessert (no gelatin or alcohol) to share.
