Ambassador Hosts Iftar at the Residence
July 23, 2012
Ambassador Katz hosted an Iftar at the residence to engage with Lisbon metropolitan area's small, but influential and diverse Islamic community. Included among the invitees were diplomats from Muslim countries, businessmen, academics, NGO representatives, educators, as well as religious figures from the Islamic community and other religious groups. Given the large makeup of minority Muslim sects in Portugal, there was also a sizeable Shia and Ismaili presence at the event.
Preceeding the dinner, a space was set aside in the residence for prayer.
