November 15 – 18Ramadan is an ancient observance that occurs on the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. The exact day depends on when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted. Traditional Ramadan includes fasting from dawn to dusk, prayer, and thinking of those who are less fortunate or do not have enough to eat. It’s a time to strengthen family and community ties and an opportunity to deepen one’s faith. Join us and make your own Ramadan hat, “prayer rug” and Ramadan lantern, or paint your own Islamic-inspired mosaic tile in honor of Ramadan (Nov. 15 & 17).
