Dear Pacifica Institute Friends,

Ramadan is just around the corner, and we would like to share some upcoming opportunities to connect with people around the Bay Area.

For the last 20 years, Pacifica Institute Nor Cal organized and facilitated wonderful interfaith fast-breaking dinners, called iftar dinners in faith houses, community centers and homes. This year, in 2022, the month of Ramadan is, even more, special because it happens to overlap with a number of sacred days and traditions including the celebrations of Passover, Easter, Vaisakhi, Mahavir Jayanti, Theravada New Year, and the Gathering of Nations.

We see this a great opportunity to re-connect. This year we will be organizing “in person” gatherings with diverse community members with the theme of “Ramadan: The month of Revelation, Gratitude and Community”, interfaith prayers for humanity, call to prayer, adhan, and more to feel and share the Ramadan joy with friends.
