Support Interfaith Dialogue
We understand there may be disappointment that we can’t accommodate more congregants at the dinner. Please, don’t worry! There will be future opportunities to get together with our Muslim brothers and sisters, including a 2017 Chanukah dinner hosted at the mosque.
Additional Interfaith Iftar Opportunities to Consider
Taking Heart Ramadan Open Houses
As Muslims prepare for the sacred month of Ramadan this May-June, the Minnesota Council of Churches and the Muslim American Society are again announcing a series of Taking Heart Open Houses. Mosques and Islamic Community Centers throughout the Metro area will be welcoming their non-Muslim neighbors for encounter and learning, capped off by a traditional Ramadan Iftar, or fast-breaking meal.
Taking Heart has been bringing Muslims and non-Muslims together for food and conversation for ten years. Last year more than 800 guests attended an Iftar during Ramadan. We hope that people who have never been to a mosque – and those who have been with us – will join in an open house at a mosque in their neighborhood, or any other sites throughout the Metro area.
Please visit www.mnchurches.org to register for one or more of the open houses. Bring friends and family!
