My office held its annual Iftar Dinner this past Tuesday, June 20, at my downtown office, where we broke fast with our Muslim neighbors, and celebrated local Community Board leaders. We were joined by Aisha Bah of the International High School at Union Square, who recited the Qur’an, and called to prayer by the imam of the Islamic Society of Mid Manhattan, Sheikh Ahmed Dewidar.
I was pleased to honor the following Muslim leaders on Manhattan community boards pictured above: Ahsia Badi of Community Board 6, Mahfuzur Rahman of Community Board 11, (not pictured) Shah Ally of Community Board 12, Natasha Kazmi of Community Board 7, and Aissata Camara of Community Board 6. This evening was a great celebration of faith and fellowship.
