Muslims across the globe observe the Holy Month of Ramadan each year by fasting from dawn to dusk. On top of fasting during daylight hours, Ramadan is also about charity, empathy, building character, reflection, and strengthening our connection with God Almighty. This year, Ramadan began on Saturday, April 2.

Muslim Student Association and Muslim Student Life at Syracuse University, in partnership with Hendricks Chapel, cordially invite the campus community and the broader Syracuse community to “Iftar Under the Moonlight” on Tuesday, April 26.

Iftar is a Ramadan dinner to break the day of fasting together. One does not have to be Muslim to attend this event – we encourage everyone, with all different beliefs and backgrounds, to attend. This event is FREE, but you must RSVP by Sunday, April 24 through the link:

The Iftar dinner will take place following a presentation by Muslims on our campus and in our community. For more information on Ramadan, and if you would like to join in the fasting for a day, please visit:
