Event description

Description

Every year, Bahá’ís all over the world celebrate two special occasions, the Births of Bahá’u’lláh (born 1817) and the Báb (born 1819), the two successive Prophets who are the central Figures in the Bahá’í Faith. The years, 2017 and 2019, are particularly special as each of these years marks a 200th year anniversary of the birth of one of these two revered Figures.

This year, on Sunday, October 8th, the Báhá’ís of Skokie will be holding the 200th year anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the first of two major celebrations for these two Figures (2019 will mark the 200th year anniversary of the Birth of the Bab). These Holy Days mark the happiest and most festive time for Bahá’is, and the Baha’i community is delighted to invite our friends, neighbors, and acquaintances to come and partake of these celebrations!

The Skokie Bahá’í Community would like to invite all the friends in Skokie, and their guests and the neighboring communities to join the Bicentenary Celebration of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh and learn more about how His Teachings are inspiring community members to align their spiritual and material affairs. The event is free & open to the public, but registration is requested.

Come and enjoy music, presentations, dinner, and much more!

Join this special event to learn and celebrate the teachings of the Bahá'i Faith.

RSVP: By Sunday, Sep 24th
