Ramadan feasting

Ramadan may be the holiday of fasting, but each day ends in a sumptuous feast fit for a king – and even tourists can take part.

While the holiday began on Sunday evening, and Monday marked the first day of the fast, even if you’re among those not observing, you can partake in the glory of the iftar, the traditional break-fast meal.

A Ramadan tour, run by Drachim Shluvot (paths that intertwine) – a forum for ethical tourism – explores culinary wonders of the Arab neighborhoods of Israel throughout the month, meeting local business owners, learning about traditions and experiencing the excitement leading up to the iftar meal. The tour starts around 5:30 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m.
