Ramadan Celebration Features Break-Fast Meal


Cedars-Sinai will mark the Islamic holy month of Ramadan with its annual iftar, a traditional meal to mark the breaking of the fast.

Ramadan, observed by Muslims through nightly prayers, charity and spiritual reflection, and by abstaining from food, water and intimacy from dawn to sundown, begins on Sunday, May 5, and concludes with the celebration of Eid ul-Fitr on Tuesday, June 4.

The iftar will be held Wednesday, May 15, at 7:30 p.m. Halal and kosher food will be available. The meal is free, but those who wish to attend must RSVP, at which time the location will be provided.

Iftar is open to the community. Sweet dates (traditional for the breaking of one's fast) will be available in the chapel and the Ray Charles Cafeteria, and for patients upon request throughout the holiday. The chapel is open 24 hours a day for prayer, and every Friday there is a communal Jumu’ah prayer at 1:15 p.m.

To reserve a place and learn the location of the iftar, email janelle.beatty@cshs.org.
