Baha'i Nineteen-Day Fast

  • Rating: NR
Baha’is prepare spiritually for their new year with a 19-day fast. The Baha’i faith began in Persia, now Iran, in the 19th century. There are up to 5 million Baha’is around the world, preaching the unity of all people. We visited a school administrator in Washington, D.C., `Abdu’l Karim Ewing-Boyd, as he and his family prepared to break the fast.
