15th Annual Dialogue & Friendship Iftar Dinner


May 16, 2019
7:00pm - 10:00pm


The Niagara Foundation of Minnesota invites you to join the 15th Annual Dialogue & Friendship Iftar Dinner. This year’s theme is  “Minimalism:A question of Sustainability.”

The Islamic holy month of Ramadan represents a time of fasting, charity, prayer, and unity for the Muslim community. In an effort to share this tradition with Muslim and non-Muslim friends, Niagara’s annual dialogue iftar dinners bring individuals from different religious and cultural communities together to break fast and engage in friendly dialogue as a way to stimulate mutual understanding and respect for others and their respective religious traditions.
