Dinner Brings Together Communities for Ramadan And ‘The Three Weeks’ of Bein HaMeitzarim
Members of Brooklyn’s Jewish and Muslim communities broke bread together at a unique multi-cultural dinner on Thursday, July 24 at Congregation Mount Sinai.
The Ramadan Iftar dinner coincided with the Jewish period of Bein HaMeitzarim (The Three Weeks) and gave participants the chance to get to know each other and explore a religious tradition that may have been unfamiliar to them. The event featured music and dancing by Jewish and Turkish performers.
The importance of brotherhood and learning about each other’s traditions was the evening’s theme.
