Dear Bahá’í Friends,

The Thirteenth International Bahá’í Convention for the election of the Universal House of Justice is scheduled to be held in Haifa during Ridván 180, from 29 April through 2 May 2023.  We have been asked to inform the friends that the pilgrimage programme will be suspended—and Bahá’í visitors may not come to the Holy Land—from 26 March to 18 May 2023.  Please share this information widely.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,
Karen McKye, Secretary
