Youth Island NY hosted its 2nd annual Iftar on April 6th!
160+ college students gathered for an iftar in celebration of Ramadan to make this night an unforgettable one! This Iftar was a beautiful display of community, as students from all walks of life came together to break their fast and share a meal. The room was filled with excitement as the students got to network and know each other before indulging in a feast of traditional Ramadan dishes. The event was made even more special with our guest speaker Semra Demir who gave a talk on the importance of Ramadan and the values of compassion and forgiveness that it embodies.
It was heartwarming to see so many people coming together in the spirit of Ramadan, and the event served as a reminder of the power of community and togetherness. Overall, the Iftar was a beautiful experience that will be cherished by all those who attended.
