Tod Ewing's recent compilation, "Towards Oneness & Freedom from Racial Prejudice: The Call for a Distinctive Contribution," edited by Phyllis Unterschütz , takes us on a journey of understanding how to address race within the community building process and the broad framework for action of the Plans of the Universal House of Justice. This includes expansion and consolidation, public discourse, and social action. While it is clear that the House of Justice is moving us beyond a fits and starts approach and guiding us to be systematic in our efforts to eliminate racial prejudice, we have much to learn about what that looks like on the ground.Find out more »
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.
