Celebrating Ramadan

August 1st was the first day of Ramadan, the month of fasting for Muslims, which ends Aug. 29 with an Eid festival. You will find a link below connecting you to a list of Ramadan community events for your own cultural learning and connection with other communities.  You may directly contact the event organizers to RSVP.  
 As a new annual tradition that started about two years ago, there is a special Ramadan Iftar (breaking of the fast) celebration this year on Aug. 16 hosted by the Montgomery County Muslim Foundation on Tuesday, August 16, at the Executive Office Building Cafeteria, 7:30 pm -8:45 pm.  The County Executive and the Council will issue a joint proclamation at the event.
