Nineteen Day Feast

The Bahá’í community generally gathers on the first evening of each Bahá’í month, or once every nineteen days. Each Feast has three portions: worship, administrative and socializing. The devotional portion tends to center on two activities: the reading of scripture, especially the writings of the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, and `Abdu’l-Bahá, and live or recorded music. The administrative portion of a feast focuses on community activities and concerns. All Feasts close with refreshments.
