Local Muslims have gotten together to host their third Ramadan Tent Project – an event to provide Iftar, the dinner to break one's fast, to Muslims as well as anyone else who would like to join in this weekend at Congregation Neveh Shalom.
Doors open Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. at congregation located at 2900 S.W. Peaceful Lane.
The Ramadan Tent Project is a London-based organization with a goal of social change. Local organizers created the first branch of the project to host the Portland Open Iftar in the United States.
Last year, over three consecutive days, the group broke its fast with a total of 1,000 people in the community at Tigard's Muslim Educational Trust. The year before that, they held Iftar at a Beaverton Church where those who attended came from different faiths and walks of life. For more information, visit here.
