Iftar in the Synagogue is a unique interfaith gathering that is held during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. This is the seventh year JCUA is putting on this special event. It is a chance for people of different religions to come together and share their diverse religious and cultural experiences, engage in conversation and empower each other to build a common future.
This year Iftar in the Synagogue is taking place on August 18 from 6-9:30 p.m at Temple Sholom, 3480 North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago. At this event there will be Jewish and Muslim prayers, speakers, conversation and a kosher/halal dinner. We will also be collecting non-perishable food items to be donated to the Urban Minority Alliance (UMMA) Center. This is a free event, but space is limited so please RSVP.
If you are interested in volunteering at the event, or want to learn more, contact Asaf Bar-Tura at email@example.com.
Iftar in the Synagogue 2011 is sponsored by the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago, the Council for the Advancement of Muslim Professionals, the Muslim Women’s Alliance, Temple Sholom, and the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs.
