Rivlin to hold iftar meal at his residence

President Reuven Rivlin says he will hold an iftar meal at his official residence for the wider Muslim community on Sunday night.

Iftar is the evening meal when Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at nightfall. Rivlin announced that he will be welcoming Muslim community leaders to the event.

Sunday also marks the Jewish fast of the 17th of Tammuz, so both Jews and Muslims will be breaking their respective fasts at the same time.
