Ramadan 2019 (May 5th-June 5th)
Relationships with others can be transformational
During the month of Ramadan, many Muslims fast from sunup to sundown, then gather together – in mosques, homes, restaurants, and elsewhere – to break their fast each evening of the month. Sometimes these dinners (called Iftars) are small family affairs, while others are more festive gatherings of larger groups.
Each year, Shoulder to Shoulder hosts The United States of Love over Hate: A Ramadan Supper Series. The primary goal of this effort is to identify, support, and connect people to Iftars open to interfaith guests across the United States, in order to help facilitate local relationship building among Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
We are grateful to our partners at Se7enFast, the Islamic Society of North America, and the People’s Supper for working with us to develop the framework and guidebook for this annual campaign!
