At joint iftar celebration, Muslim-Jewish High School Council launched | Los Angeles | Jewish Journal.

It is good to read of initiatives like this one where Jews and Muslims are coming together to share food during Ramadan. Sharing a meal is a social occasion when people get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. the iftar meal, which is the first meal after breaking the fast at the end of each day during Ramadan, is also part of a religious celebration. It is preceded by the prayer of maghrib which takes place just after sunset and so on this occasion the Muslims prayed first while the Jews also prayed their evening prayer and then all came together to eat. This also provided the opportunity for the gathering to discover some of the commonalities of the two faiths. Click on the link above or here to read the article.
