Dear Friends,As the Holy Month of Ramadan approaches, Niagara Foundation and TASOM (Turkish American Society of Missouri) would like to invite you to attend an Iftar dinner with local Turkish-American host families.
Fasting is practiced in many religious traditions and spiritual practices. We believe common traditions like shared meals are important opportunities for people from different faith communities to become closer to each other.
Ramadan is a holy month that starts on June 6th and during which Muslims fast from the break of dawn to sunset. We will begin offering the Iftar dinners every Monday through Thursday from June 6 to July 6. And due to late sunset time during the summer, these programs will start at 8:00pm and dinner will be served slightly later at sunset.
Since fast-breaking meals are a time for loved ones and friends to commune together, the dinners will be hosted at the homes of local Turkish-Americans in our community in St Louis. As people join, we will pair them with the families. Niagara Foundation and TASOM will determine the exact families as the spots fill up.
Please kindly RSVP here by filling out this form. Information about the host family, their address, phone number, and professional affiliation will be shared with you as soon as we finalize the family matching process.
