The Chicago Jamatkhana Social Hall was filled with the songs and scriptures of many faiths that came together on November 13, 2018. The annual Thanksgiving service is a longstanding tradition of the Edgewater Community Religious Association (ECRA), an alliance of about 20 Christian, Jewish, and Muslim congregations in the diverse neighborhood in northern Chicago. The celebration is hosted by a different congregation every November, and this year was the first time the local Jamat had hosted since 2012.

Fostering art and culture through live performances is one of the program objectives of Ismaili Centres.  In partnership with Prabhas Arts, the Ismaili Centre, Toronto hosted a Kathak Dance performance titled Dhamaar a Fantasy of Kathak Dance.

Dr Rubana Huq, Managing Director of the Mohammadi Group, speaks of the dynamic potential of human agency at the event entitled ‘A cosmopolitan ethic in action.’

The Ismaili Council for Bangladesh hosted an event earlier this year in which the notion of a cosmopolitan ethic was explored and discussed by a selection of esteemed speakers and guests, gathered within the beautiful setting of the Ismaili Jamatkhana and Centre in Dhaka.
