Kadee, our lead Spiritual Care Practitioner & Ombudsperson, helps our youth to celebrate community/culture-specific holidays and often adds an educational component. This helps our youth and staff become more familiar with each other’s beliefs and traditions.
Eid al-Fitr also known as the “Festival of Breaking Fast,” marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting. In Islam, it is distinguished by the performance of communal prayer at daybreak on its first day. Eid al-Fitr is a time of official receptions and private visits when friends greet one another, presents are given, new clothes are worn, and the graves of relatives are visited. This year, Eid al-Fitr began on May 12 and finished on May 13th.
Our Food Services Team in coordination with Kadee prepared a delicious dinner for the youth to celebrate the end of Ramadan (Eid al-Fitr). The youth thoroughly enjoyed the hearty, delicious meal.
