Join us for a special multicultural iftar, a breaking of the fast for Ramadan! We’re encouraging individuals from various cultural backgrounds to come together and share their unique cuisines, so students will bring a culturally significant food item or snack to share. 

Our goal is to create a sense of unity among all participants as they break their fast with foods from different cultures, including Arab, South Asian, Balkan, Hispanic, and others. Through this event, everyone can showcase their cultural heritage and learn more about the diverse backgrounds represented within the group. 

For more information, reach out to mlsa@nyls.edu.

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. Observers fast each day from sunrise to sunset. After sunset, the fast is broken with a meal known as iftar. A commemoration of Muhammad’s first revelation, the annual observance of Ramadan is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam and lasts from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next. This year, it is from March 22 to April 20.
