Ramadan Tent Dinner At Payrow Plaza
As the sun sank into the horizon, a group of hungry people began eating dinner inside a tent pitched at Payrow Plaza. Unlike most Musikfest revelers, this group is observing Ramadan, a month of fasting and prayers for Muslims around the world. The Lehigh Dialogue Center and Peace Islands Institute offered a meal, completely free of charge, to anyone interested in interfaith and intercultural dialogue. Another meal will be offered tonight.
Among those I saw at last night's meal was Lehigh County Judge Edward Reibman.
Ramadan ends on July 17.
