Gain Perspective from Dr. Hedy Lemar Walls
April is a month of diverse holidays for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. On April 9 Christians celebrate Easter, the resurrection of Jesus. From April 5 to 13 Jews observe the Passover festival that recognizes the freeing of Israeli slaves. During March 22 through April 20 Muslims are honoring Ramadan by memorializing the revelation of the Quran (the Islamic holy book) to the prophet Muhammad. Each holiday remembers a rich history and legacy passed across generations.
Along with these traditions, our beautiful diverse community commemorates many cultures and celebrations in April. Explore the educational and enrichment opportunities in this month’s Connection.
