About the observances:
  • Ramadan is a time of prayer and introspection, during which many adult Muslims observe a daily fast from sunrise to sunset. The fast is broken each evening with Muslims gathering together for a meal known as Iftar.
  • Passover is the Jewish holiday commemorating the Hebrews’ liberation from slavery in Egypt and the “passing over” of the forces of destruction, or the sparing of the firstborn of the Israelites. 
  • Easter, the principal festival of the Christian church, celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his Crucifixion.
  • Riḍván is a twelve-day festival that celebrates the beginnings of the Bahá'í Faith in 1863.
