Annual Community Iftar
Wednesday, June 13 | 6 PM
IMAN’s Annual Community Iftar brings a diverse cross-section of families, friends and residents together for an evening of engagement and reflection. The night also includes a healthy iftar dinner and taraweeh (night) prayer under the stars. The Annual Community Iftar in many ways embodies the spirit of IMAN–fostering holistic health, wellness and healing in the heart of one of Chicago’s most vibrant inner-city neighborhoods.
