Interfaith Eid Celebration
Join The East-West Foundation, Florida International University, and 10 Days of Connection for Interfaith Iftar: a conversation about religious practices around the world. An iftar is the meal that breaks the traditional Muslim fast at sunset/nautical twilight during the Islamic month of Ramadan. This Interfaith Iftar is intended to invite members of different faiths to learn about American Muslim culture and facilitate mutual understanding. Participants will learn about various prayers of peace from different traditions, experiences in life, and conclude with lunch. Join this network of interfaith leaders and students to connect on topics of interest to further peace and social justice in our community and foster interfaith understanding across religious communities in Miami.
10 Days of Connection is a community-driven initiative to confront the increased divisiveness facing communities across the country. It is an annual community-led challenge inspiring all locals to step out of their comfort zone and come together with people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, to unite in our shared humanity. From May 1 through May 10, 2022, multiple “Connection Experience” will be available to people throughout Miami and Broward County areas.
It is free to attend this program, and registration is required. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Miami Foundation.
Date/time: May 10 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
