Last year the Taking Heart Program brought 350 non-Muslim guests into local mosques to learn about the holy month of Ramadan and celebrate it with their neighbors. This was the first visit to a mosque for 233 people!
As our Muslim neighbors once again prepare for the sacred month of Ramadan this July, join us for a series of open houses at area mosques organized by the council’s Taking Heart program. Ramadan is the month on the Islamic lunar calendar during which Muslims abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. The fast is performed to learn compassion, self-restraint and generosity. Each day the fast is broken with a meal called Iftar. Please complete this form to let us know you’re joining us for Iftar dinner and conversation. More events may be scheduled as Ramadan approaches. Registration is required to attend.
