Ramadan Iftar Dinner with Families 2023

March 26 - April 10

The volunteer families of the Atlantic Institute cordially invite the friends of the Atlantic institute to their homes for a fast-breaking dinner during the upcoming Ramadan.

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast by abstaining from consuming water or food while the sun is out. Iftar – or fast breaking – dinners occur each night once the sun sets. This is an important time not only for those who participate in Ramadan because of their faith, but also it is an important time for gathering with friends and neighbors over delicious food and through lively conversation. It is truly a special time when people of all backgrounds come together and share in the Iftar experience, learning about different cultures and faiths.

This year Ramadan begins on March 22nd depending on the moon sighting. Host families will begin offering the Iftar dinners between March 26th – April 10th. If you have attended Iftar dinners in previous years, you are more than welcome to attend again, as many guests do so.

Please contact ga@theatlanticinstitute.org for any questions or concerns.

Note: Fasting is not required for guests. Information about the host family, their address, phone number, and professional affiliation will be shared with you as soon as we finalize the family matching process
