Sample tantalizing dishes, enjoy traditional Andalusi-style songs, and take a special tour of artworks that express the interfaith themes inspired by Mimouna traditions—a special time when Moroccan Jews and Muslims break bread together!
Join liturgical artist Shir Ifrah as she performs the music and poetry of Mimouna. This festival, which marks the end of Passover and the advent of spring, is based on Moroccan narratives of unity, commemoration, goodwill, and friendship.
Presented in partnership with the Sephardic Heritage International DC (SHIN DC) and the DC Commission of the Arts and Humanities.
The Global Religions of Africa Initiative at the National Museum of African Art is generously supported by the Lilly Endowment Inc.
