Ramadan is considered to be a holy month for Muslims. During Ramadan, Muslims commemorate the revelation of the Qur’an and fast during the sunlit hours as a means of drawing closer to God and cultivating self-control, gratitude, and compassion. Moreover, Ramadan is also the month of giving for Muslims. For instance, people invite their friends, family, and neighbors to iftar dinners. Unfortunately, CRC could not host its traditional annual Ramadan dinner past year due to the COVID-19 regulations.
As our local community continues its struggles with the repercussions of COVID-19 and in hopes of continuing the spirit of Ramadan through sharing, Chestnut Retreat Center and our volunteers continued to share meals and show our appreciation to our neighbors. CRC,
