Tzedakah-Sadaqah: A Series of Intercultural Service Projects
Join the Faith and Spirituality Centre in partnership with the Leadership and Student Engagement office as we explore what “service” means. We collaborate with various religious and spiritual communities in Calgary and offer a diverse range of educational workshops, organized volunteer opportunities and critical reflections/debriefs.
"Tzedakah" derives from Hebrew meaning righteousness, fairness or justice and is often used to refer to charity obligations. "Sadaqah" is an Arabic word means charity and comes from the tradition of Islam.
- Baintun Nur Ahmaddiya Mosque
This November, join us as we explore the Baitun Nur Mosque, home to the Calgary Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Students, staff, and other participants will learn about Sadaqah for the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, visit the mosque, help sort food donations, volunteer in the mosque’s library, and listen to a presentation on the community. Participants will also have an opportunity to observe prayers if they would like.
Please arrive to the mosque NO LATER than 11:00am.
