We cordially invite you and your family to have a traditional “Iftar” (Fast Breaking) Dinner with one of the local Turkish families, who are members of the Turkish American Society of Michigan.
Fasting is practiced in many religious traditions and spiritual practices. We believe common traditions like fasting are important opportunities for people from different faith communities to become closer to each other. Now, we are in the holy month of Ramadan *, in which Muslims fast from the break of dawn to sunset. In this month, it is customary to invite friends, neighbors and relatives to share the fast breaking meal. Local Turkish families are inviting you for a dinner as a humble presentation of common ground, friendship and peace.
During this dinner, you will get a chance to taste various dishes from the authentic Turkish cuisine, as well as the famous Turkish tea and/or coffee. This is not only a chance for you and your family to meet new friends, but also an opportunity to experience a different culture at first hand.
Please kindly RSVP by filling the form by clicking here. We will inform you about the organized schedule soon. Note that, due to late sunset time during the summer, these programs will start at 9:00pm and meal will be served at sunset.
* This year Ramadan starts on June 6 and ends on about July 4.
