Hosting #Ifthar

The Cape SABJD made Board history by hosting Muslims to an ifthar meal marking the end of a day’s fasting at the Café Riteve on 11 June.

The event was initiated by interfaith trailblazer Mickey Glass, and guests were addressed by Board chairman Eric Marx, Israeli Ambassador Arthur Lenk, Rabbi Oshy Feldman and Mansoor Ahmad Zahid who spoke on the importance of the fast.
Prayer facilities were provided for guests in the sukkah hall, along with dates and fruit juice, traditional treats for breaking the fast. It was a much-appreciated opportunity for sharing a meal in friendship and fellowship, where hosts and guests could embrace our commonalities, rather than our differences.
