Ramadan, Easter, Passover

The first week of April of 2023 is a special moment among the three Abrahamic faith traditions–Christianity, Judaism and Islam–as major annual observances will overlap this year. This overlap is quite rare, occurring three times in a century. Muslims will be midway through their month-long observance of Ramadan, Christians celebrated Palm Sunday on April 2 which also marks the beginning of Holy Week leading up to redemption on Easter Sunday, and those of the Jewish faith will celebrate their liberation from bondage during the feast of Passover which commenced on April 5.

For all our friends who are observing one of these events we send our best wishes for a joyful celebration.
