Ramadan Iftar with a Host Family
During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Muslims fast by abstaining from consuming water or food while the sun is out. Iftar – or fast breaking – dinners take place each night once the sun sets. During Ramadan, visitors are more than welcome to attend an Iftar (fast breaking) Dinner with local Palestinian host families. This is an important time not only for those who participate in Ramadan because of their faith but also an important time to share this tradition with the guests of different backgrounds over delicious food and through lively conversation. It is truly a special time when people of all backgrounds come together and share in the Iftar experience, learning about different cultures and faiths in the process.
