Western Washington Baha’i School (Washington State)
August 14 - August 18
Theme: “Race Unity, Most Vital and Challenging Issue”
The Western Washington Baha’i Summer School is a space where friends, families and neighbors, from the whole human family, come to immerse themselves for a few days in Baha’i culture. Together in this spiritually uplifting and transformative environment, we learn to increase our capacity, build community, engage in social discourse, and elevate mankind through study of the Sacred Writings, conversation, music, arts, fun, and fellowship.
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.
