Ramadan 2023 was an extraordinary time for Rumi Forum and its community partners. After three years of social distancing, this special period was the moment to reconnect with our friends and allies, sharing the joy of Iftar while engaging in fruitful conversations regarding future endeavors. Ramadan also became the opportunity to carry our monthly Scriptural Reasoning series into an in-person format, which we would like to continue in the future.
We thank all of our community partners, allies, friends, and volunteers for making Ramadan an invaluable opportunity for reinforcing existing friendships and building new ones.
