Please Note:  

Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. and program at 7 p.m. Plan to arrive with enough time to park in the new structure which may be accessed off of Hobart. You will only be able to enter through that entrance. Each guest will need to enter through security, regardless of whether s/he parks on the street or in the Temple's parking structure. Please bring with you a form of identification to ensure that this process is as seamless as possible.

For those not fasting: food will not be served until after 8 p.m. as this is an event that celebrates the month of Ramadan. Please plan accordingly. 

There will be family service and activities for children available, for a fee. Payment will be accepted online as well as at the door. However, if you do plan on purchasing childcare at the door, please contact

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

From past experience, I know there are plenty of Vegetarian (and Vegan) dishes too, that I prefer … Thank you!
