Salam will celebrate Nowruz ( or Norooz ) on March 24th , the “New Day” holiday which commemorates the Persian New Year, with a dinner and entertainment. Dating back 3,000 years, Norooz is rooted in Zoroastrianism–an ancient Iranian religion that influenced later religions. It is considered by Iranian and Persian people of all religions as one of their largest annual celebrations.
The Rev. Rennie Kaufmann, pastor of Risen Christ Lutheran Church in Plymouth, Michigan, and a professional entertainer will be joining us, in addition to two Syrian singers. Please book the dates. It will be held in one of the Western suburbs of Chicago. The venue will be announced soon.
