On our way to Uskudar..

“iftar” is the meal that is eaten at sunset to break the fast during the Ramadan.
The Uskudar Municipality held iftar dinners on one of their ferry boats during the month of Ramadan last year and they plan on doing it again this year.
For those who will be participating to these meals, they will be entertained by live music and/or readings from famous poets and writers like Bedirhan Gokce and Ayse Egesoy. They also planned concerts from Murat Gogebakan and Alisan which are two turkish ethnic music singers.
On the first day (5th of October 2005), there will be a panel with extremly important participants. The panel is named;
“Birlikte Yasamak Guzeldir; Uc Semavi Din Bir Arada” – “Living together is nice; Three Celestial Religions together.”
Aram Kevork Safaryan from Kuzguncuk Church, Anri Abudara ; The President of Rabbi Society of Turkey, Mehmet Gok; The Mufti of Uskudar and Prof.Dr.Niyazi Oktem; President of The Platform of Intercultural Dialogue will be attending to the panel.
