Community Iftar

NewGround Annual Interfaith Community Iftar

As a result of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, NewGround will not be hosting a physical  2020 Community Iftar. Alternatively, we’ll be convening online for a mass celebration of community on April 30, 2020.

The event is free to attend, and sponsorship levels are available for browsing. These are tough times, and it is your support that will sustain our community-building in the months to come.

We’re looking forward to creating a unique, engaging, and safe experience for our community. All are welcome.

Each year, NewGround convenes the largest gathering of Muslims and Jews in Los Angeles to break fast (i.e. Iftar) at a Jewish Temple in an act of coming together to celebrate the Islamic month of Ramadan and appreciate the community members among us who observe it. A night of community building, breaking bread, and spiritual rejuvenating, our annual Iftar has become a cornerstone of the Los Angeles interfaith community.
We invite all to join us for dinner and to celebrate the incredible work of our Change-makers as we prepare to commence graduation festivities for our most recent cohort of professionals from our fellowship program. You will get the opportunity to connect and engage with Muslims, Jews, and allies of all backgrounds from around Southern California.
