Iftar is the traditional breaking of the fast that is done from dawn to dusk every day during the holy month of Ramadan. After hours of no food and water, people gather together to feast and connect.

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota’s (LSS) Refugee Services is honored to share in the faith tradition of many of our newly-arrived refugee families, and we are delighted to invite members of the greater LSS community to join us in building bridges of friendship.
