Dear Bahá’í Friends,

As described in the Riḍván 2018 message of the Universal House of Justice, and recently in its message dated 25 November 2020, a special gathering will be held in the Holy Land for the Centenary Commemoration of the Ascension of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. In a letter dated 1 December 2020, the Universal House of Justice expressed its fervent hope to be able to welcome invited guests from around the world from 21 to 28 November 2021 for this occasion. We have been asked to inform the friends that the pilgrimage programme will therefore be suspended from 22 November to 1 December 2021 and from 3 to 11 January 2022. In addition, brief visitors may not visit the Holy Land from 10 to 30 November 2021 and from 28 December 2021 to 8 January 2022.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,
Karen McKye, Secretary
