The Cornell Club of New York Presents: “The Meaning of Ramadan” A Discussion and Reception with Haroon Moghul

When: August 2nd, 2010, 6pm – 10pm
Where: 6 East 44th Street, New York, NY
Cost: $31 per person [see below for RSVP guidelines]

Join the Cornell Club for its first-ever introduction to Islam’s holiest month, followed by a delicious dinner featuring Middle Eastern and South Asian cuisine.

Haroon Moghul, Ph.D. candidate at Columbia University and Executive Director of The Maydan Institute, will outline what the Ramadan fast means for Muslims. With Islam often in the news, and American Muslims constituting a dynamic community at Ivy League Universities, such an event is welcome — and necessary.

Network with other interclub members, discover the common values that link Islam to other Western religious and ethical traditions and break bread with fellow alumni.

Miscellany: All guests must have reservations made through Cornell Club members. Advance reservations are required by Thursday, July 29th. Tickets must be purchased through PayPal at

The Council of Foreign Relations, the non-partisan think tank which also publishes Foreign Affairs, has just published a much-needed backgrounder on the world’s second-largest intergovernmental body, the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).

Maydan Institute’s ED, Haroon Moghul, was consulted for the backgrounder and is featured.  Please read and share the full document, as it represents a valuable resource for understanding an increasingly prominent global organization and relationships between America and the West.
