Minnesota Moment: Iftar bringing many people together

May 29, 2019 03:06 PM

A community unites by simply sharing a meal.

Iftar, an event where a meal is consumed by Muslims after sunset during Ramadan, took place at a St. Paul recreation center Tuesday night.


Organizers tell KSTP that people from all walks of life take part in the event.

"Everyone that comes here today is part of something. This is what the community is, it has no religion or race, and as you can see it's packed and I love that," said Ibrahim Mohamud, a volunteer.

Along with the meail, people talked about being united during times of division, hate, biogotry and anti-Semitism.

Watch the video box above for the full story.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story showed video of Ibrahim Mohamud and referred to him as an organizer of the event. He was, in fact, a volunteer.
