On the Start of Ramadan

The holy month of Ramadan is a time of reflection, spirituality, discipline and devotion for Muslims across the country, and around the world. Yet, it is also a time for all Americans to reaffirm our commitment to religious diversity and pluralism.

This period offers each of us the chance to rededicate ourselves to the values shared by all faiths; to recall our obligations to each other; to help the less fortunate; and to pursue justice and work for the common good.

May this Ramadan bring joy, wisdom, and peace to all who observe it. May you and your families be blessed. Ramadan Kareem.
