On Special Devotions at the Baha'i House of Worship for North America: In support of the Bahá'í prisoners in Iran

 Special Devotions
In support of the Bahá'í prisoners in Iran
Sunday, February 7 at 12:30pm
Bahá'í House of Worship Auditorium
100 Linden Avenue, Wilmette, IL
This program will be dedicated to seven Iranian Bahá'í leaders who have been imprisoned in Tehran for nearly two years on false charges stemming from their membership in the Bahá'í Faith, which was founded in Iran in 1844.  The next scheduled session of the trial will take place on February 7, 2010.
Following prayers in the Auditorium, there will be a program in Foundation Hall beginning at 1:15pm that will include prayers, music, and an explanation of the circumstances surrounding the current trial of the seven wrongfully imprisoned Bahá'í leaders.  The program will last approximately 1 hour, and light refreshments will be served.
The Bahá'í Faith is the largest non-Muslim religious minority in Iran and more than 200 Bahá'ís have been executed by Iranian authorities since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. To learn more about the Bahá'ís in Iran, please visit:
