Today, Muslims – locally and globally – are observing Eid al-Adha is remembrance of Ibrahim’s test of faith, obedience, and willingness to sacrifice his son.

As you commemorate the Festival of Sacrifice amongst family and friends, may we come together to reflect on the importance of selflessness and caring for the needs of others in our community.

As always, I am honored and proud to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community in district 45 and throughout the City of New York.
