Traditional Shows

Emerald Hills Institute welcomes you to some of the nicest traditional shows we perform time to time. One of them is, of course, Whirling Dervishes. Almost all of the ancient cultures in the world meet at love, peace, and traditional dances. That is one of the ways we reach out to the other communities and give back to our society. 

Ramadan Dinners

The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the soul by freeing it from harmful impurities. Ramadan also teaches Muslims how to better practice self-discipline, self-control,[41] sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate; thus encouraging actions of generosity and compulsory charity (zakat).[42]


Emerald Hills Institute thought of the talk series as a venue to cultivate friendship and strengthen civic dialogue among the many civil communities.

Noah's Pudding

Ashure is one of the limited set of Turkish desserts which contain no animal products. One reason behind it is arguably protesting all kinds of violence and bloodshed.Traditionally, Ashure is made in large quantities to commemorate the ark's landing and is distributed to friends, relatives, neighbors, colleagues, classmates, among others, without regard to the recipient's religion or belief system as an offering of peace and love. Ashure was traditionally made and eaten during the colder months of the year as it is calorie rich fare, but now it is enjoyed year-round.

Cooking Classes

Breaking bread together and chatting over a warm meal is a great way to break ice and build bridges to hearts. It also creates grounds for dialog, kinship and friendship and understanding cultures. The cooking classes organized and held at Emerald Hills have just such an objective. The dishes demonstrated are not just from the Turkish kitchen but are taught by the diverse members from all over the world.
