Happy Holidays

As we approach the end of another remarkable year, we would like to extend our heartfelt greetings and warm wishes to each and every one of you.

The holiday season is a time for reflection, gratitude, and unity, and we are truly grateful to have a community that strives to be a spiritually vibrant, caring and sharing at IMAN.

May this joyous occasion bring you and your loved ones peace, happiness, and prosperity.

As we bid farewell to 2023 and welcome the new year, let us continue to strengthen the bonds of friendship and understanding within our community.

May the coming year be filled with blessings, good health, and opportunities for personal and collective growth.

Let us strive together to foster an environment of compassion and respect, embracing the diversity that makes our community so unique and rich.

May the year ahead be a source of joy, success, and spiritual fulfillment for you and your loved ones.

Let us also pray for a world of peace and justice in Israel/Palestine, an area that is sacred to people of all three Abrahamic faith traditions. A world that embraces and delivers safety and security, freedom and liberation to everyone who inhabits the land, which necessarily requires an end to the decades-long military occupation. We look forward to the day when our beloved Israeli and Palestinian children alike will be able to celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness together.
