It has been mooted that if we – Jews, Muslims and Christians in these here parts – were to focus more on stuffing our faces than on political pontificating, things in the Middle East would be a whole lot calmer. Anyone who participates in the forthcoming Iftar Yerushalmi festival events, which will take place May 28 to June 10, might subscribe to that line of thought and, while they’re at it, have themselves some delectable vittles.
The first part of the festival title references the Arabic name for the evening meal with which Muslims break their fast, daily, at sundown during the month of Ramadan. Ramadan began last week and is due to end around June 13.
