Niagara Foundation of Minnesota cordially invites you to be our guest for the 12th Annual Dialogue & Friendship Iftar Dinner*
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.
Niagara Foundation organizes this event in association with TASMN.
* We will be serving Vegetarian and Halal dinner. Kosher dinner will be available upon request with RSVP.
** It is free and open to the public.
