WASHINGTON – Secretary of State John Kerry will host an Iftar to commemorate the month of Ramadan in the Benjamin Franklin Room at the Department of State on Wednesday, July 24, 2013.

At this event, Secretary Kerry will highlight State Department efforts to reach out in innovative and exciting ways to engage with Muslim communities around the world. The event will reinforce programs that build bridges of understanding and partnership, and celebrate people whose work exemplifies a spirit of cooperation and commitment to change.

An Iftar is a celebratory dinner breaking the fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan, the month of the Islamic calendar during which Muslims fast from dawn to sunset. Ramadan is the month Muslims believe the Qu’ran was revealed to the Prophet Mohamed; it is a month of reflection, generosity, and compassion for nearly 1.7 billion Muslims worldwide.
