During this holy month of Ramadan, we have witnessed the love and hospitality of the Muslim community across Cape Town, who have opened their doors and dinner tables to host non-muslim friends for Iftar, the evening meal that breaks the day’s fast. These dinners have been opportunities for connecting, sharing and learning about our different traditions, and particularly the significance of Ramadan.
As Stuart Diamond, Director of the Cape SA Jewish Board of Deputies and CTII Board Member said, speaking at the Turquoise Harmony Institute’s annual Friendship and Dialogue Iftar on the 28th May,
“When we share bread and break bread, and we start to speak as people, over something as simple as food, we break down the boundaries and the walls that keep us apart”
Here we have a collection of photographs from various Interfaith Iftar meals hosted during this holy month.
