CAIR-MI: Muslims Join Yom Kippur/Ramadan Program

(LATHRUP VILLAGE, MI, 10/3/06) - Representatives from the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI), the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn and the Shadhuli Sufi Center of Peace and Mercy in Ann Arbor joined the Michigan Jewish community at the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor for a joint fast-breaking program yesterday in observance of Yom Kippur and Ramadan.

This is the first event of its kind in the Ann Arbor area, which is home to large Jewish and Muslim populations.

"As fellow children of Abraham, it is important for us to share our spiritual traditions to help enhance respect and interfaith understanding in Michigan," said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid.
