Niagara Foundation of Minnesota and Bosphorous Dialogue Association served more than 200 cups of Noah’s Pudding at the University of Minnesota Campus. The event was held at the Coffman Memorial Union on 27th of January in 2009.
Every year, people cook Noah’s Pudding in remembrance of Noah and God’s mercy on him and the believers. In Turkey, it’s customary to prepare the ashura at a certain time of the year. Ashura prepared at home is shared with the neighbors. Generally, people who prepare ashura send a cup to each of their neighbors as a tradition.
In January 2009, we decided to prepare and share the ashura with U of M students as our tradition. The students came and take a cup of ashura while they had chance to learn about another culture by talking with the group members.
