Hatred in recent months has violated the sanctity of worship for Christians, Muslims, and Jews around the world.
We have an opportunity for doing a Tikkun, a small step towards fixing the world, by sharing a special meal of solidarity and faith with fellow Muslims and Christians here in Malibu: an opportunity for reclamation of love over hatred, unity over divisiveness, peace over chaos.
Iftar is one of the religious observances of the Muslim month of Ramadan and is often celebrated as a community with people gathering to break their fast together. MJCS has been invited to participate together with our Muslim and Christian neighbors, hosted by the Pacifica Institute Muslim group and Malibu area clergy. Aside from breaking bread together, we will learn about our respective traditions, have an opportunity to ask one another questions, and hopefully experience a profound sense of inter-religious solidarity.
The main vegetarian dish will be provided by the Pacifica Institute and dessert by St. Aiden’s Episcopal Church. Please bring a salad and a drink (non-alcoholic).
Finally, please note that we will have security for this event – a sad but necessary precaution – and insist that you RSVP by name. We have a limit of 50 guests, total.
