The first of Sisters in Spirit Interfaith Iftar Dinner, one of the most recent event series organized by Peace Islands Institute Connecticut, took place on Wednesday, January 8th at the Peace Islands Institute Connecticut office.

Guests, from different backgrounds, shared bread and ideas following a brief introduction to Ramadan. Attendees expressed that these events were long expected and filled the gap for warm heart-to-heart conversations between people of different beliefs, races and socioeconomic status. There was eminent interest for the next meeting and recommendations for the next event’s topic were also collected from the participants.

In order to honor attendees, PII volunteers made a representative donation to Embrace Relief Foundation’s “Raise an Orphan” campaign per person that attended the event.
