Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture. This year it is celebrated from May 16th to June 14th. Millions of Muslims around the world will gather with family and friends to pray, fast from dawn to dusk, and break-the-fast with meals and feasts, called Iftars. Our community will join others across the United States to celebrate in solidarity with Muslim friends and neighbors and focus on peace, justice and healing in the Middle East and here, in our communities.

Join us for this inspiring event and please let your friends know. If you would like to volunteer to help, please contact Sheila at escuelita@baymoon.com
