2019 Iftar Dinner with Turkish American Society of MI

We cordially invite you and your family to a Friendship Iftar (Fast-Breaking) Dinner at Central Woodward Church, organized in collaboration with Turkish American Society of Michigan (TASM). This is the fourth year of this collaboration between faith communities.

Fasting is practiced in many religious traditions and spiritual practices. We believe common traditions like fasting are important opportunities for people from different faith communities to become closer to each other. Now, we are in the holy month of Ramadan, in which Muslims fast from the break of dawn to sunset. In this month, it is customary to invite friends, neighbors and relatives to share the fast-breaking meal. We are inviting you for a dinner as a humble presentation of common ground, friendship and peace.

We will gather at 8:00 for a brief program concerning Ramadan and testimonies of interfaith friendship, as well as fellowship, before breaking the fast at sunset. During this dinner, you will get a chance to taste various dishes from the authentic Turkish cuisine, as well as the famous Turkish tea. This is not only a chance for you and your family to meet new friends, but also an opportunity to experience firsthand a different cultural tradition.
