Conversations during the meal I
On July 29th, we gathered to have together an Iftar dinner that ended one of the days of Ramadan, for the Muslims, and Tish'a be-Av fast of the Jews.
We met at the Barbara restaurant in Bet-Jala, 49 people from 6 different youth groups of IEA!
The dinner was a great opportunity for us to get to know other groups in IEA, to meet new people and to celebrate together, after a hard day of mourning and fasting. In every table there was a talk about Ramadan and the aims of fast in Islam, and about Tish'a be-Av fast and the reasons for it. The beginnings of discussions were led by Ofek Birnholz, a devoted member of IEA youth groups.
It was a great evening for us all, and a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences, to meet new people and to enjoy with our old friends.
This is not the first time that we are having a joint Iftar meal, and we are hoping to continue this tradition in the next years.
