About this Event

SevenDays® 2020 - Day 7 - GO Day

Join us for an evening of interfaith dialogue for youth and adults, followed by an Iftar meal as our Muslim hosts will be observing Ramadan.

Our interfaith facilitators will discuss the role fasting plays in the following faiths: Catholicism, Islam, Judaism and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

As guests in the Islamic Center, we want to be respectful of their cultural practices.

Below is a list of how you can best be prepared.

  • Long pants and long sleeves should be worn while inside the Islamic Center.
  • Females participating in the prayer will need to bring & wear a scarf to cover your head.
  • All participants will have the opportunity to observe and/or participate in the prayer between our workshop and the iftar meal.
  • All guests participating in the prayer, please wear slip-on shoes for easy removal.
  • If you plan to observe from the prayer rooms, please wear slip-on shoes for easy removal.
  • If you choose to observe the prayer, you will have the option of watching from inside the prayer rooms or to remain in the banquet hall and watch on TV.
  • If you do not wish to observe or participate in the prayer, there will be a quiet room in which you can spend the time.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Program starts at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m. Dinner is from 8:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. This experience lasts longer than any of our other scheduled experiences because we are following Islamic prayer, Ramadan and iftar protocol.
