We had a wonderful interfaith iftar dinner on the 27th night of Ramadan, which is Laylat Al Qadr a.k.a. Power of Nights. The event was hosted at LVMPD Summerlin Area Command by the collaboration of LVMPD Summerlin Area Command and Silver Sage Foundation.

This Power of Night Iftar dinner event brought people from different faiths and backgrounds together to share a meal, break bread, and learn from one another. While Summerlin Area Command hosted the event, the volunteers of Silver Sage Foundation set up the tables, room, and prepared the delicious meal.

The event started with the welcome speech by Kevin McMahill, the LVMPD sheriff. Sheriff McMahill thanked all the participants and the volunteers of Silver Sage Foundation for being the co-host of the event. Dr. Ali Shehata talked about the Laylat Al-Qadr. Later, participants watched a short video about Ramadan and listened to the “call for adhan” to break their fast.

We believe that events like these are essential in fostering mutual respect, understanding, and appreciation among people of different backgrounds. We hope that this event will serve as a platform for meaningful connections and conversations that will contribute to building a more inclusive and united community.

We, Silver Sage Foundation, want to express our deepest gratitude to all who attended, and to the volunteers who prepared delicious food. Your commitment to fostering understanding and goodwill across communities is amazing.

Ramadan Kareem! 🌙✨

The Silver Sage Foundation – Reno Office and the University of Nevada – Reno Rumi Club held their annual Ramadan Iftar Dinner on Saturday evening, April 15, 2023, and approximately 130 people gathered at the McKinley Arts & Culture Center in Reno.

The dinner was an opportunity for the Northern Nevada community members to join their Muslim friends for an evening meal as they break their Ramadan fast. The event included a traditional Middle Eastern Turkish dinner.

The guest list included Assemblywoman Angela D. Taylor, Ph.D., Cynthia Esparza, M. Chief Equity and Community Relationships Officer from the City of Reno, on behalf of Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Ralph Caldwell, and people of diverse faiths and backgrounds attended the annual Ramadan dinner.

The event started with short presentations by community peacemakers about the holy month of Ramadan and its meaning for the community. Before breaking the fast, a call to prayer, “Adhan,” was announced with its meaning in the subtitles on the screen. Assemblywoman Angela D. Taylor, Ph.D., made the closing remarks.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response, Silver Sage Foundation – Reno Office will continue these interfaith efforts and publicize future events among faith and peoples in the Northern Nevada area.

Fasting is a time to clean the body and mind.  

Why do we do it?  
What benefits do we receive?  

Let’s explore fasting in our religious traditions such as Ramadan and Lent.  Let’s celebrate the many features we have in common.  

We held a virtual meeting series and talked about the season of fasting on Sunday, April 16 at 3 pm PT. 

Ramadan Fasting 

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, reading, charity, prayer, and reflection.  Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and involves abstaining from food, and drink,  from dawn until sunset.  It is a time for Muslims to focus on their spiritual growth, increase their acts of worship, and deepen their connection with Allah.  Ramadan fasting is not only about abstaining from food and drink but also about abstaining from negative thoughts, actions, and speech.  

Lent and Easter

Easter is a significant Christian holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Many Christians around the world observe the season of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter Sunday.  Lent is a time of reflection and penance and is often marked by fasting, prayer, and acts of charity.  The purpose of Easter fasting is to purify the body and soul, renew one’s faith, and prepare for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection.  Christians may choose to abstain from certain foods or behaviors during this time to help focus on their spiritual growth and relationship with God.  

Both Ramadan and Easter fasting have significant religious and cultural importance and provide an opportunity for individuals to reflect on their faith and personal growth.

Our youth group @silversageyouth will be hosting Youth Iftar Dinner next Saturday, April 8.
