Video - First day of Ridván Online Celebration from the Bahá’í House of Worship for North America
In years past, as part of its annual celebration of Ridvan, the “Most Great Festival,“ the Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois, hosted special devotional gatherings and musical programs for these Holy Days. The 12-day Festival of Ridvan is among the most significant observances in the Baha’i calendar.
This year, due to social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the House of Worship is offering a new way of celebrating with what may be an even wider audience. The staff is working with volunteers who are videotaping themselves singing or saying selected prayers. These video clips will be edited together and shared online on these festive days.
