Taking Heart Open Houses
Taking Heart Open Houses is a long-running program coordinated by the Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) and the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MAS-MN) to bring Christians and members of other faith communities together with Muslims for food and conversation during Ramadan. Minnesota mosques and Islamic community centers welcome their non-Muslim neighbors for a traditional Iftar, inviting a time of encounter and learning. In 2018 Taking Heart saw more than 1100 non-Muslims attend Open House Iftar dinners along with their Muslim neighbors.
Please follow this link to learn more about Taking Heart. Registration is now open so you can sign up for one or more events. Currently there are 15 Iftars from which to choose; as more mosques sign up to host their gatherings will be added to the registration page.
Bring a friend and learn more about your Muslim neighbors as they are learning about you! These events are free and open to the public.
