Interfaith Iftar at St Thomas
On June 4 the McLean Islamic Center organized an Interfaith Iftar at St Thomas. It was not an Outreach Committee event, but it was a form of outreach, because St Thomas was the physical host and a dozen or so St Thomas members mixed with many Muslims from the McLean Center and a smaller number of Jews from Temple Rodof Shalom. It took the form of an enormous dinner in Hudson Hall, followed by some speeches. A lot of mixing of the faiths occurred at the tables, and a Muslim prayer meeting was held in the Narthex.
