We Refuse to Be Enemies - Part 2
An Evening of Music, Conversation and Friendship
We will break bread together

Congregation Neveh Shalom 2900 SW Peaceful Lane Portland, Oregon

We are continuing our new series devoted to bringing together communities of people who, due to the accidents of history or modernity, are sometimes viewed suspiciously. We reject those definitions. Instead, we share our stories, our music and our food. These heal us. They unite us and forge friendship from distrust. They build a better society. They make us responsible for one another.

Won't you join us for this highly humanizing evening?

The Ramadan Tent Project (RTP) Open Iftar will return once again to host iftar on May 27, 28, 29. This is the second year the Open Iftar is being held in the U.S. under the RTP umbrella, and still the only site in the nation to do so. The public is invited to participate in this event which will be held in the main hall of the Muslim Educational Trust. Muslims, Christians, Jews, and people of good faith are invited, and each night there will be a speaker: Muslim, Christian, and Jewish. Food and refreshments will be provided.
The Ramadan Tent Project is an initiative that began in London, UK in 2011, but has now spread to various cities around the world. The goal of RTP is to unite Muslims and non-Muslims alike, break barriers, and show the true face of Islam by sharing an iftar meal.
