Gift of Hope
November 1 @ 9:45 am - 11:00 am
The morning will include interfaith representatives reading from their sacred texts in The Bahá’í House of Worship and a gathering in the adjacent visitor’s center for an interfaith conversation about how the gift of organ and tissue donation connects us all.
Gift of Hope supports and promotes diversity in all its forms including the rich diversity of different religious traditions. During the month of November, which Gift of Hope celebrates as Faith and Hope month, we encourage all faiths to emphasize the compassionate message of offering hope and life through organ and tissue donation.
About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days
The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.
