event is not suitable for young children.)

Dinner and Dancing

At 5:30 PM in the Gymnasium, the mosque will serve an Ottoman-style feast
with many traditional Turkish dishes. After the dinner, local dance
historian Stephen Kotansky will teach and lead traditional Turkish and
Balkan folk dances, accompanied by live music.

Admission is $25 per person, $40 per couple. Children under 12- $15.

Both events are being held at the Green Meadow Waldorf School
